A man twice investigated for illegally guiding fishing trips on the Columbia River was sentenced to five days in jail, put on probation and ordered to pay a fine.

Jereme Jones, 33, of Boring, was originally cited by Oregon State Police in 2012 for guiding without a license.

In 2014, police said they learned he was doing it again.

After checking with the Oregon State Marine Board, it was determined Jones did not have a valid guide license.

He was contacted by police at Nehalem Bay at the conclusion of a guided fishing trip in October 2014 and taken into custody.

He was booked at the Tillamook County Jail on charges of guiding without a valid license and taking undersized crab.

Earlier this month, police said he pleaded guilty to one count of failure to register as a guide or outfitter.

According to an Oregon State Police report released Thursday, Jones was issued a $100 fine and sentenced to five days in jail, three years probation, three years angling license suspension and three years guide license suspension.

The Oregon State Marine Board registers outfitters and guides annually to certify that they carry the minimum liability insurance required by law, they have current first aid and CPR training and, if required, have a U.S. Coast Guard operator license and Surety Bond.
