Contraband lobster

You have to click thru a couple of times to get to the story, but it's worth reading.

Shipping lobster tails to the US, 4% of which where undersized according to an old foreign law (not US law) is good for 8 years in US prison. He didn't live in the US, his fishery wasn't in the US, the US law he violated was shipping fish products to the US that were harvested in violation of another country's laws (Honduras claims he wasn't in violation of their law), he could not have been extradited. When he heard about the indictment he came to the US on his own to clear things up. He won't do that again.

If the US hasn't become a rogue country then I just don't know what a rogue country is.
