Texas, North Dakota men face federal charges of illegal hunting

PIERRE, S.D. Two Texas hunting guides and three North Dakotans have been indicted on federal charges of illegally helping clients shoot deer.

The indictment says the men violated the Lacey Act by selling and transporting deer that were illegally shot in 2003 on an Indian reservation.

The indictment says the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe had decided not to issue them licenses.

The Texans named in the indictment are 56-year-old Jerry Donald Brooks of Midlothian and 58-year-old Rodney Charles Brooks of Cedar Hill.

All five men face conspiracy charges, and a variety of other charges have been filed in connection with individual hunts.

The maximum penalty per charge is five years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine.

Some of the men face arraignment August second in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
