According to the story, when Husted found out that prairie dog season was closed, he went to the commission director and reported his violation. According to department policy, Husted must be cited for the violation, which could result in fines and (theoretically) jail time. And that's when things got a little complicated. Apparently, Husted wasn't happy about the possibility of actually being punished for his inadvertent crime, so he pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing later this month. As for the game and fish commission, they laud Husted's honesty and integrity, and say there's no way Husted will lose his license or his position.
