BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of former Republican gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell for poaching an elk in eastern Idaho in 2010. The decision handed down Thursday affirms two lower court decisions upholding Rex Rammell’s conviction of a misdemeanor for shooting an elk in a hunting zone outside the one identified by his official permit.

Rammell ran and lost in the GOP primary for governor in May 2010. He was convicted by a jury in Idaho Falls in June 2011 and began the appeal process days later. The conviction was initially upheld by a magistrate judge then again by 7th District Judge Jon J. Shindurling. The Spokesman-Review reports Rammell focused his appeal on grounds the state failed to prove he intended to unlawfully kill the elk.
