Stephen Few recently pleaded guilty to attempting to influence a public servant, hunting big game without a license and illegal possession of wildlife. In return for his guilty plea, other charges were dropped, according to a spokeswoman with the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office. Few was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours of community service.
Few was named as a suspect in an alleged deer poaching incident on Nov. 17, 2016.
A citizen called Colorado Parks and Wildlife that day to report a suspected illegally harvested deer near the town of Elbert. A wildlife officer responded and initiated an investigation, and soon after, the Elbert County Sheriff's Office and the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office were made aware that Few was the primary suspect in the case.
Few moved to Colorado from Georgia and had been employed with the Elbert County Sheriff's Office for approximately 2½ months at the time of the incident. He resigned and is no longer associated with the department.
