Fisherman gets trial date

By From page A7 | November 20, 2013

A Sacramento man accused of using a gill net to capture fish on the North Fork of the Cosumnes River on June 7 was assigned a trial date of Jan. 21, 2014.

Todd Jones, defense attorney for Steve Thang, 44, and deputy district attorney Lisette Suder, agreed to a Jan. 21, 2014 trial in Department 1. Although Suder estimated the trial to take two days, Jones said there could be witnesses and it could take three days total.

A readiness and settlement hearing was set for Jan. 6, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 1.

Thang, Kuay Sin Saethern, 67, and Charles Tang, 42, are accused of three misdemeanors each: illegal method of take, illegal gear — the gill net, which is illegal in California within 100 feet of a canal, river, stream, lake or reservoir — and unlawful possession of over limit of trout, allegedly 70 with a legal limit of five per day and possession of 10. One was also allegedly fishing without a license, an infraction.
