Clients receive sentences of probation in a multi-state federal investigation of Lacey Act violations in Maine, New Jersey and elsewhere.

We represented two individuals who were charged with Lacey Act violations in Maine emanating out of a multi-state investigation by the Environmental Division of the United States Department of Justice. The charges alleged that the defendants had illegally fished for several hundred pounds of Elvers (baby eels) without licenses. Both of our clients pleaded guilty but received sentences of probation and fines. Other defendants were sentenced to terms of incarceration.
