Oregon Department Of Justice Hires Anti-Poaching Prosecutor

(Salem, OR) -- Oregon has a high rate of poaching, and now the Oregon Department of Justice has a special prosecutor who will focus on those cases. Jay D. Hall worked for the Lane County District Attorney's office for the last 12 years prosecuting major crimes. He's an expert in using Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, statutes to hold poaching rings accountable. One case involved over 300 poached deer and elk. This is the third phase of a legislative plan to reduce poaching. The first two phases were a public awareness campaign and increased enforcement.
