If convicted of that charge, he would face a maximum term of 5 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and a term of up to three years supervised release following any term of imprisonment. Additionally, Garrish was charged with introducing plants into the park ecosystem, littering, trespassing, and defacing and damaging real property. Each of these charges carries up to 6 months’ imprisonment, a $5,000 fine, up to one year supervised release, and/or up to 5 years’ probation.
 
Mr. Higdon stated: “Criminal acts which blemish the beauty of our public seashore and the safety of its visitors will not be ignored,” and he reinforced the committment of his office to partnering with all law enforcement agencies in the Eastern District of North Carolina to keep its communities safe.
 
Investigation of this case is being conducted by the National Park Service. Assistant United States Attorney Daniel Smith is representing the government.
