Wildlife Ordinance Charge Dropped!

Attorney Zahra Umansky represented a client who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Osceola County, Florida for failure to pay a fine for a hunting without permit case. Attorney Umansky filed a motion to recall the outstanding warrant. At the same time, Attorney Umansky contacted the prosecutor regarding dropping the charges. At the hearing, the Court recalled the outstanding warrant and the prosecutor dismissed the criminal charge!

Many people don’t realize that there is hunting in Florida, and perhaps consider that a reason not to need a permit or abide by hunting rules while engaging in the hobby.  Between the massive amount of wildlife in Florida and the expanse of undeveloped land, there is definitely a pool of hunting opportunities in the state – they just have to be approached in an ethical and legal manner.  These kinds of problems are also often seen with fishing.  Illegal fish harvesting is an activity that happens often along the Florida coast.

If you failed to produce a permit for an outdoor activity you were participating in and now face a warrant for your arrest, speak with an Orlando attorney at The Umansky Law Firm today by calling (407) 228-3838.

Environmental Crimes in Florida

Florida may not be known for game hunting, but there is still an abundance of wildlife that must be protected.  When people hunt or fish without a permit, they tamper with a delicate ecosystem. Many do not realize that they can face criminal penalties for fishing without a license or traveling with wildlife across state lines.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is tasked with investigating criminal violations of state law that occur in state parks and on the waterways. Illegal activity ranges from Level 1 to Level 4 offenses, with Level 4 offenses being the most serious. If you have been caught fishing or hunting without a license in Central Florida, you deserve representation. At The Umansky Law Firm, our attorneys represent clients accused of committing any of the following violations:

  • Hunting without a valid permit
  • Fishing without a valid permit
  • Tagging wildlife
  • Any other fish or wildlife violation in the greater Orlando area

Those who are convicted of wildlife violations may face a fine or criminal charge depending on the type of violation. Criminal wildlife violations may be misdemeanor or felony offenses that can incur steep fines and incarceration.
