Court Brief: New Exam Date Set for Man Charged With Killing Geese

A pre-exam hearing scheduled Tuesday for a 69-year-old St. Clair Shores resident charged with striking, and killing, two geese, has been rescheduled for October.

The pre-exam hearing for a St. Clair Shores resident charged with running over, and killing, geese was adjourned Tuesday and rescheduled for October.

Richard E. Lesko, 69, will return to 40th District Court Oct. 12 for a pre-exam hearing on two counts of killing an animal for striking and killing two geese in front of his home.

Lesko is alleged to have driven his pickup into a flock of geese crossing the road in front of his home in the 22000 block of Lange Street, and then allegedly turned his truck around and drove through the flock a second time, killing a second goose.

Lesko is charged with four-year felonies, and could be incarcerated, up to $7,500 in fines and up to 500 hours of community service if he is convicted of killing the geese.

He is free on a $10,000, or 10 percent, bond.
