Utah is home to tremendous natural resources. To protect them, the State of Utah aggressively pursues fish and wildlife crimes. Unfortunately, this aggressive protection can go overboard. Many innocent people are often accused — simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
At my Salt Lake City law office, I represent people who have been accused of poaching and other fish and game violations. My clients often face serious consequences, such as losing their hunting or fishing rights for years and being fined thousands of dollars or more. As an experienced Salt Lake City poaching attorney, I defend them aggressively to protect their records, rights and freedoms.
Poaching Attorney in Salt Lake City
In Utah, wildlife and animals are regulated under the "Wildlife Resources Code of Utah" – Title 23 of the Utah Code, which identifies a number of environmental crimes:
- Taking, transporting, selling or purchasing protected wildlife
- Wanton destruction of protected wildlife
- Waste of wildlife
Further, Title 23 Chapter 25 of the Utah Code is known as the "Wildlife Violator Compact." The law provides for the enforcement of Utah penalties in other states as well. So, losing your hunting license in Utah can affect your right to hunt in California, Montana, Alaska or anywhere.
