Tacoma Environmental Crime Attorneys

Types of Environmental Crimes

These federal laws that govern these kinds of crimes are very complex and require an attorney well-versed in both the laws, the federal agencies that protect and prosecute them, and the federal court system.

Environmental crimes generally fall under federal laws, including, but not limited to:

  • The Clean Water Act
  • The Clean Air Act
  • The Resource and Conservation Act
  • The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)

Examples of crimes that fall under environmental law include illegal dumping of waste into lakes, rivers, streams, and oceans, oil spills, excessive emissions seepage, unapproved septic systems, cutting down protected trees, burning garbage, destroying wetlands, and more.

Penalties for environmental crimes can include heavy fines, jail time, and probation. These penalties will be based on the nature and extent of the violation, prior criminal history, and other pertinent facts unique to the case.
