IA: Feds go after accused illegal deer hunter

January 16, 2013

IOWA-MISSOURI -- John Fredrick Bender, 43, was indicted in December on three counts of violating the Lacey Act.
Federal prosecutors say that in December of 2007, and twice in November of 2010, Bender illegally shot, transported and sold a white tail deer across state lines.
Federal court documents say that on all three occasions, Bender shot a deer in Iowa with a rifle, from a roadway, and without a license. All are violations of Iowa law. The case became federal when Bender transported the deer between Iowa, Missouri and Pennsylvania.
Additionally, Bender faces a count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and faces a fine of up to $250,000 on the Lacey Act violations and could face prison time on the gun charge.
