Va. Commission Revokes Licenses of 5 Watermen for Violations

Posted:

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Marine Resources Commission has revoked the licenses of five watermen for fisheries violations.

David S. Luckett Jr. of Hayes, Willie F. Shiflette Jr. of Hayes, Ava Marie Shiflette of Hayes and Charles Franklin Davenport of Hampton lost their licenses for two years, along with fishing privileges in Virginia's tidal waters.

The commission revoked the license and fishing privileges of Roger Lee Belvin of Achilles for one year.

The commission says Belvin, Willie Shiflette and Ava Marie Shiflette pleaded guilty to repeatedly taking oysters from public rocks in a closed area. Luckett was convicted of illegally taking small, unculled oysters from public rocks.

Davenport was convicted of several violations, including harvesting oysters from a condemned area.

All of the licenses were revoked on Tuesday.
