JACKSON – An Arkansas man has been sentenced to five years in jail for leasing land to hunters that didn’t belong to him, Attorney General Jim Hood said.

Seth Bradshaw, 35, of Pigott, Arkansas and formerly of Sunflower County, appeared before Judge Bettye Sanders for sentencing after pleading guilty to three counts of false pretense.

Authorities said Bradshaw leased hunting land, which he did not own, to three separate victims in the amount of $37,000.  Judge Sanders ordered Bradshaw to five years behind bars, with all but five days suspended.  Bradshaw must also pay full restitution of $37,000 in the amount of $638 per month until paid in full, $250 to the Mississippi Crime Victim’s Compensation Fund and all court costs.

“As a hunter, I found this swindle to be particularly galling,” said Attorney General Hood
