Wildlife trafficking is a crime. Our Special Agents are on the case.
A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service special agent joined an international turtle-trafficking ring and helped take it down. The traffickers were financed from abroad by an individual who never set foot on U.S. soil while purchasing native box, spotted and other turtles.
That didn’t stop the Service’s Office of Law Enforcement from bringing him here to face justice. Today he was sentenced in New Jersey to 38 months in prison and one year of supervised release on a federal money laundering conviction.
