Region 8 Man Pleads Guilty in Son's Hunting Death

January 14, 2004 - Posted at 8:07 a.m. CDT

 

HEBER SPRINGS, AR - A Greers Ferry man charged with two misdemeanors after accidentally shooting his son on a hunting trip has pleaded guilty on both counts.

Gary Galloway pleaded guilty to two counts yesterday in court at Heber Springs.  His son, 14-year-old Brad Galloway died last month when his father shot him while hunting.  The older Galloway mistook the teenager for a buck on a hillside.

Galloway pleaded guilty to charges of endangering the welfare of a child and violating the hunter-orange requirement.

The judge permanently revoked Galloway's Arkansas hunting privileges and fined him $155 for not wearing hunter's orange. 

Galloway also must provide safety classes at Cleburne County schools over the next year.
