Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A Marquette man has been arraigned in two counties on a total of 26 charges related to alleged waterfowl and charter operation violations.

30-year-old Terry Jay Wilson was arraigned in downstate Arenac County District Court.

He waived arraignment in Mackinac County District Court on additional charges.

The charges came after a 2-year undercover investigation by the DNR Special Investigations Unit.

The 26 counts – 17 from Arenac County and 9 from Mackinac County – ranged from operating an unlicensed and uninspected charter boat, to hunting waterfowl from a boat under power and exceeding waterfowl bag limits.

If convicted on all charges, Wilson faces over $20,000 in fines and reimbursement, hunting license revocation, one year in jail and condemnation of the boat.

He is currently free pending his next court appearance.
