Hawn begins jail sentence

The Flume reports:

Texas businessman Jeff Hawn, who arranged the killing of 32 bison belonging to rancher Monte Downare in South Park last spring, will be treated like any other inmate at the Park County Jail during his 10-day sentence, which began on Feb. 2. At least that's the intention of the Park County Sheriff's Office, which plans to put Hawn to work preparing food for other inmates. Hawn, who is the chief executive officer of Seattle software company Attachmate, surrendered himself to jail on Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. and will spend five days behind bars before a brief respite over the weekend. Then he will turn himself back into jail on Feb. 9 and spend another five days in jail to complete his sentence. Park County Undersheriff Monte Gore said Hawn would be assigned a job he would be required to do, and he would be housed with the general population of inmates during his stay in jail...
