What Are the Penalties for Federal Park Crimes?
The federal government owns these parks. Crimes committed in these parks are federal crimes, which means they generally have a maximum penalty of six months in jail and/or a $5,000 fine.
These crimes are scheduled for trial in the federal court in Salisbury, Maryland. Citations charged in the federal parks are misdemeanors that will go on your permanent record if you pay the fine or if you appear in court and are convicted. Probation before judgment is not a sentencing option in federal court.
Not all attorneys are members of the federal bar. Andrew MacDonald is a member of the federal bar authorized to practice in federal court. Mr. MacDonald routinely represents clients charged with federal crimes in the Assateague Island National Seashore and Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge.
