A Whitewood man has pleaded not guilty in federal court to illegally trafficking deer.
Fifty-seven-year-old Everett MacKaben Jr. is accused of violating the Lacey Act, a federal law targeting wildlife and plant trafficking.
He’s accused of violating state and Oglala Sioux laws that deal with hunting without a license or in violation of a license. Allegedly breaking those state and tribal misdemeanor laws became a federal felony when he allegedly sold more than $350 worth of deer between October 2013 and December 2017.
He could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
