If he would have done this in New York he would have gotten a 125$ fine and lost his license for 3 years, maybe.

In NJ, you can get caught on trailcam trespassing, have police show up and catch you straddling a dead buck trying to cut its head off before the season even opened, no valid license and poaching out of season and not get in much trouble at all.  True story.

I'm not convinced this is case is as "cut & dry" as it seems.  The defendant has had several opportunities to take much easier paths out of this situation but has declined each time.  He's either delusional (could be), confident that he and his co-defendants have their story straight such that they won't be convicted (maybe), or really didn't do anything wrong (who knows).  If he is convicted, I hope it truly is because he is guilty ... and not because of overzealous prosecution that was influenced by a DA who was also after the deer (sour grapes?).

not much flies under the radar in a small town, let alone with a buck that big. it's sad to think that some dude without a pot to piss in could shoot a nice deer and piss off the wrong person that has money and political ties. not ruling that out but also open to the charges being entirely true. i've know people to do all that same stuff for much smaller bucks.

And you and I had a window into that case a few short years ago. I think he paid a small fine and that was it. Right back to poaching.

The article states (emphasis by me):

“Wildlife officers discovered through warranted searches of cellphone data that Christopher Alexander had illegally hunted the trophy buck on private property about 10 miles from his sister’s land, and later learned that the written permission from his sister he had presented to wildlife officers had been falsified — after the deer was killed — to mislead authorities,” reads a press release from the Ohio attorney general’s office, which details the indictment that was handed down by a Clinton County grand jury Friday.

They probably have digital photos with day, time, and geo stamps placing him at the private property, not at his sister's.  Probably also have text messages with the co-conspirators to support their scenario of events.

they typically don't indict without feeling they can win, but from what i've read they haven't presented any damming evidence to us the public yet either. They mention text messages, but idk.
