June 29 Arraignment For Twisp Residents Suspected Of Wolf Poaching, Smuggling

Three members of a Twisp, Wash., family accused of killing wolves, attempted export of an endangered species and other federal offenses have been summoned to appear in a Spokane courtroom late this month.

According to Tom Rice at the U.S District Attorney’s office, William “Bill” D. White, Tom D. White and Erin White will be arraigned June 29 at 1:30 p.m.

A grand jury handed down a 12-count indictment against the trio earlier this month.

The Methow Valley News has a large story on the case this week, including more about the concurrent state case against Bill and Tom for alleged deer and bear poaching.
