A Sugar Camp father and son who own thousands of acres of farmland have been charged with illegal possession of bald eagles and reached plea agreements in U.S. District Court in Madison.

Alvin C. Sowinski, 65, and Paul A. Sowinski, 46, each face a maximum penalty of one year in prison and restitution of $100,000, according to John Vaudreuil, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin who announced the filing of an information and plea agreements last Tuesday.

how many eagles were in their possession - would seem that the fine and jail term should be for each bird - jail should run back to back and they should forfeit their farmland

what are the 'plea' agreements
