“Cheating and Fraud”… Imprisonment and Confiscation of Fishing Competition Vessel

Date:

Two Americans have been sentenced to 10 days in jail for cheating in a local fishing tournament, and their $130,000 vessel was confiscated.
“I am convinced that these two cheaters have cheated in many tournaments in recent years,” said Michael O’Malley, the attorney general for the state of Ohio (North America) who prosecuted them.
“Unfortunately, they can only be held accountable for what they have done on September 30, 2022,” he added.
Back in the day, Jacob Runyan and Chase Kominsky were participating in a major fishing tournament on Lake Erie, one of the five largest lakes in North America.
The tournament’s grand prize, worth $28,760, was awarded to the winning team that caught five of the biggest fish in the lake.
When Runyan and Kominsky were weighing the catch, the match manager became suspicious when they noticed that the size of the catch did not match the weight shown on the scale.
Both contestants were immediately disqualified and the police launched an investigation.
In addition to prison terms and the confiscation of their vessel, Runyon and Kominsky were ordered to pay $2,500 in fines and have their fishing licenses revoked for three years, the maximum period set by local laws.
