KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A celebrity hunter from Tennessee who unlawfully killed a deer in Kansas has been banned from hunting anywhere in the United States or the world for the next year.
The U.S. attorney's office also announced Wednesday that 50-year-old William "Spook" Spann must spend a total of 30 nights and weekends in federal custody by the end of February.
U.S. Magistrate Judge James O'Hara imposed the sentence Tuesday after finding that Spann violated the terms of a plea agreement that banned him from hunting for six months.
Last year, Spann pleaded guilty to transporting across state lines the antlers of a deer he killed on land adjoining his central Kansas property. He was only permitted to hunt on his property.
Spann has a hunting show, "Spook Nation," on the Pursuit Channel.
