PIERRE — A Pierre man has been given credit for time served following a conviction for the federal charge of failing to appear in court. U-S Attorney Alison Ramsdell says 44 year-old Michael Pomani served two months in federal prison awaiting sentencing for violating federal wildlife protection laws. Pomani failed to appear at a December, 2017 pretrial hearing and jury trial for violating the Bald and Gold Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act. He was released on bond at the time. Pomani was ordered to pay 16-thousand-800 dollars in restitution to the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service for illegally selling bald eagle and owl feathers and hawk wings. Pomani was indicted on the Failure to Appear indictment in May and pleaded guilty in June. He will serve one year of probation along with two months of home confinement.
