Well, I'm headed to court again on March 24th for a trial on "deer feeding/baiting". I live in Red Oak (Lewiston) in the middle of a "section" of woods. I have cows, turkeys, chickens, guineas, pigeons, and quail. My livestock "free range".
This one day for about half hour plus, an airplane flew in a circle over my property. Then a DNR officer pulled up in a truck. He asked about the corn in the yard. I explained that "3" days ago, I had picked up 3 100 lb bags of corn. I also picked up gasoline and kerosene. Some kerosene spilled on one of the bags of corn, so naturally I had to spill the tainted corn out cause the livestock wouldn't eat it (common for farmers). After three days out there nothing was eathing it. DNR wouldn't hear of it, wouldn't smell or taste the corn. Wrote me a citation.
Went to court and found out it's 90 days in jail, $500.00 fine, a misdemeanor, I'm on a $1000.00 bond and now I have to hire an attorney. My next court date is March 24th @ 10:00 a.m. Besides this, I have elderly parents (87 and 86 yrs) who I spend a few days a week in Bay City cleaning house, groceries, doctors etc. My social security check hasn't arrived this month yet. I'm afraid, I have little money, and I have to be available for my parents (not 90 days in jail).
I'm open to any suggestions.
