MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A federal magistrate judge has ordered a Fergus Falls man to remove the road he built on federally-protected wetland.

Forty-nine-year-old James Bosek was also sentenced to two years of probation Wednesday and was ordered to restore the wetland on his rural Douglas County property.

The land Bosek owns is subject to a perpetual easement that the Department of Interior purchased in 1963.

Officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spotted the road when making an unrelated stop at Bosek’s property in 2008.
