MONTROSE, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania county treasurer has been cleared of charges he used bait to hunt deer.

Luzerne County Treasurer Michael Morreale and five others were found not guilty Tuesday of hunting over bait by a district judge in Montrose.

Wildlife officers say the Game Commission received an anonymous tip Dec. 3. Two days later officials went to a private property in Forest Township where they say they found the bait.

Morreale, 75, says he and his sons own the property where it was found. He says his group did not put out the bait.

One politician (District Magistrate) finding another (County Treasurer) not guilty.

BIG DEAL....who believes that is a fair trial?

All the District Magistrate's voting sportsmen should have attended the hearing then I bet that things would have been different.

What I love is how everyone assumes he was guilty... And that the system is crooked..

LEO's are part of the system too... You can't have it both ways.. either the whole system is crooked including the PoPo, or it is generally fair...

I mean geez maybe the guy was not guilty?

Just like the rest of them in Luzerne Co. politics right Karl?


It's very touchy subject in NEPA...I have lost faith in the whole system.


He is guilty of wearing a bad toupe....just sayin.

It wasn't possible that the accused shot the deer legally, and then someone snuck in....planted bait that night, then called the PGC and said "hey....there's deer bait where
Luzerne County Treasurer Michael Morreale and five of his buddies were huntin and 'ol Mikey killed a deer!!!

You dislike someone enough to plant evidence?

Nah......not in this country? Ya think?
