Crabber fined $750 after court no-show

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Juneau
Type: Illegal crab gear
On 3/28/12 Michael Nilsen, 56, of Petersburg, failed to appear for an arraignment on a single count of operating a commercial king crab pot that failed to have the required legal escape rings. A judgment was entered against Nilsen for a fine of $750. The pot used in the violation is to be returned to Nilsen at his own expense and within 30 days.

  1. One pot that had the king crab escape rings still tied up after tanners closed and he got fined 750 and has to buy his pot back. Good thing they are getting these "bad guys".
