Southeast crabber draws 215-day jail sentence

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Juneau
Type: Sentencing — crab violations, contempt of court
On 8/2/12 James Royal Seymour, 36, of Southeast Alaska, was sentenced in Juneau District Court on a total of eight separate cases involving crimes committed between 2007 and 2011. Included in the crimes were multiple commercial crab violations in Hoonah, Petersburg and Juneau. As a result of failing to appear for multiple court hearings, Seymour also was charged with contempt of court, failure to appear and violating conditions of release. Seymour also had several petitions to revoke his probation filed. In all, Seymour was sentenced to serve 215 days in jail. Seymour has been held at the Ketchikan Correctional Center since May 10, after he was arrested on several outstanding warrants. At that time, Seymour was observed by an off-duty wildlife trooper at the swimming pool and later arrested by Ketchikan city police officers. Seymour commercially fished from the F/V Loyal Lady.
