(5 Counts) UNLAWFUL POSSESION of RESTRICTED WILDLIFE; (5 Counts) UNLAWFUL PURCHASE of RESTRICTED WILDLIFE, (1 COUNT) TAKING WILDLIFE WITHOUT a LICENSE and (1 COUNT) POSESSION of UNLAWFULLY TAKEN WILDLIFE REDUCED to PROBATION with ZERO DAYS in Jail and a $500 FINE – State v. Mr. W (DMC No. 10325) (McDowell Mountain Justice Court JC2011-137943): Mr. W had been buying and collecting Diamondback Rattlesnakes and Sidewinder Rattlesnakes. He was also trading and selling them on the internet. Officers conducted a “sting” operating in which they posed as buyers and sellers. They then contacted Mr. W and “set him up”. He was ultimately charged with Unlawful Possession of Restricted Wildlife per Arizona Revised Statute ARS 17-309(A)(1), and Purchase of Restricted Wildlife under Arizona Revised Statute ARS 17-309(A)(2). 2 other Counts of Taking Wild Life without a License per ARS17-331(A) and Possession of Unlawfully Taken Wildlife under Arizona Revised Statute ARS 17-309(A)(17) were also charged. We were able to have all 12 charges reduced to a single count of taking Wildlife Without a License, which included a $500 fine and zero days in jail.
