Loveland man accused of poaching bear sentenced

Paul Detwiler sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - A Loveland man accused of poaching a black bear and several other animals has been sentenced to 18 months in a halfway house.      

The Coloradoan reports Paul Detwiler was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty in July to one felony of illegally possessing a gun and three lesser charges.        

Detwiler was arrested in January after he and undercover game warden Robert Pope hunted together several times. Detwiler has said he was set up and that he shot the bear from a porch because he feared for the safety of his daughters.
