Baton Rouge Lacey Act Defense Lawyers
The amount of time and resources that typically go into investigating suspected violations to the Lacey Act will almost certainly necessitate that the investigating agency eventually indict anyone suspected of the federal crime. Since federal prosecutors will be doing everything they can to convict you of these charges, you will need to take every available precaution you can in order to protect yourself from the serious consequences of a conviction.
At Cazayoux Ewing Law Firm, our Lacey Act defense attorneys can help you understand what you are up against; our Baton Rouge team is made up of a former federal prosecutor and former U.S. Attorney who will use their experience to help anticipate any legal tactics that may be used against you. Though all of this will probably be incredibly frightening for you and your family, you will still have the opportunity to retain legal representation and defend yourself in court.
Core Components of Alleged Lacey Act Violations
Since the Lacey Act is intended to help regulate the import of species that are granted protection under domestic and international law—as well as prevent the spread of invasive species—these charges are likely to be pursued if the investigating agency believes you are guilty of taking, possessing, transporting, or selling fish, wildlife, or plants that are in violation of:
- United States law
- American Indian law
- International law
The consequences of a conviction on these charges can be life-changing, but our Baton Rouge legal team will be there to help you develop a legal strategy and both defend your rights and protect your future.
