Pastor Pleads Guilty Of Several Snake Buying & Selling Charges

A Bell County pastor pleads guilty to several counts of buying and selling snakes.

Fish and wildlife officers confiscated dozens of snakes from Gregory James Coots' Middlesboro home earlier this month.

Coots was sentenced to two years probation and he has to give up all his animals and pay thousands of dollars in fines.

The pastor pleaded not guilty to more than 20 similar charges in Laurel County.
