EASTON, MD. — There are so many Maryland watermen raiding the oyster sanctuaries that the Maryland Natural Resources Police might have to bring in a barge with a portable jail cell on it to contain them as they run around the Bay picking them up when they are caught. The problem with that is that the Maryland General Assembly doesn’t include jail time for serial poachers.

Pirate Poacher Kings of the Bay Have Nothing to Fear from Feckless Maryland Officials: stripped of license Reihl kept hauling in stripers
The State of Maryland has highlighted the actions of Maryland State Police and Natural Resources police using satellite technology, helicopters and watercraft as officers issued citations for poaching, undersize catches, and raids by pirate watermen on oyster sanctuaries. Two men who were subjects of arrests and issuing of citations are featured here along with results of when they appeared in court. They are brothers, Benjamin Leonard Reihl and Adam Vincent Reihl.
Benjamin Leonard Reihl
Chestertown, Md. — Benjamin Leonard Reihl was charged by Maryland Natural Resources Police Officer Rogowski with three counts of possession of undersized oysters on March 21, 2014 and in Talbot County District Court on June 19, 2014 was found guilty and fined $277.50 plus court costs of $22.50.
As Reihl appears to find Maryland rules for watermen and motor vehicle laws inconvenient to him, this PIRATE KING BOX SCORE is provided for our readers as well as for Reihl and his younger brother Adam.
Court records reflect Reihl using the Maryland Public Defender system on one occasion and only once hiring a private attorney; thus the money he saves on lawyers is used on paying fines. But court records reflect that on nearly a half dozen occasions he has been granted a deferred payment status by the courts, meaning that he was able to negotiate plea deals with prosecutors without the help of attorneys and then was able to have his payment deferred.
