Man Sentenced For Poaching Turtle Eggs

A 52-year-old man has been sentenced for poaching sea turtle eggs and we're not talking about in boiling water. We're talking about taking them from the nest which is illegal. Kenneth Coleman of Riviera Beach was convicted of stealing 300 turtle eggs in March. He actually pleaded guilty. He was sentenced yesterday to two years in federal prison. He also received a 12 month consecutive term for violating probation on a previous turtle egg poaching case. The eggs had a black market value of over 2-thousand-dollars.
