    David Lesh is Back With A Splash - Banned From Natl Forests

    Judge forbids David Lesh from national forest land after latest social media post

    News NEWS | October 30, 2020

    A part-time Colorado resident who documents his disrespect for public lands on social media learned Friday what happens when defendants try to go toe-to-toe with a federal judge.

    After agreeing to a compromise earlier this month that allowed David Lesh to enter U.S. Forest Service lands if he agreed to abide by the same rules as everyone else, U.S. Magistrate Gordon Gallagher lowered the boom on Lesh for appearing to flout that agreement 19 days later when he posted a picture of himself purportedly defecating in Maroon Lake.

    As of Friday, Lesh, 35, will no longer be allowed to enter millions of acres of U.S. Forest Service lands for the foreseeable future thanks to the Maroon Lake photo posted Oct. 21 on Instagram, Gallagher said.

    In addition to the ban, the judge forbid Lesh from posting any picture or video on any social media platform of himself or anyone else violating state or federal laws on any federal lands under the jurisdiction of the court, including National Forests, National Monuments, Bureau of Land Management land and other federal property, the judge said.

    “I find it appropriate to change (Lesh’s bond conditions) … to protect the land not only from Mr. Lesh’s direct actions, but also from the influence Mr. Lesh clearly has” on social media, Gallagher said. The judge also said he was issuing the ruling “to ensure the safety of the community.”

    The ban will last at least the duration of the current federal case against him.

    Lesh asked the judge to postpone the ban and the other conditions until he could hire a new attorney, probably by the end of next week.

    “The request is denied,” Gallagher said, noting that Lesh must sign the new conditions by Tuesday or risk arrest.

    The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Grand Junction had already threatened to ban Lesh from U.S. Forest lands in early October. That’s when he appeared in U.S. District Court to answer allegations that he trespassed — and posted proof of his actions on social media — at Keystone Ski Area in late April and Hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs this summer.

    However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter Hautzinger and Lesh’s attorney, Stephen Laische of Grand Junction, were able to work out a compromise that was accepted by Gallagher on Oct. 2. Under conditions of that compromise, Lesh agreed not to trespass on closed national forest lands and abide by all rules on open lands or risk arrest and/or forfeiture of a $1,000 bond.

    Nineteen days later, he posted the Maroon Lake picture on Instagram with a caption Gallagher read out loud during Friday’s virtual court hearing.

    Perhaps there is more to the story, but strictly from the post above I am compelled to ask the following questions:

    How will they enforce the ban?

    Why didn't the judge heft a huge fine on the defendant?

    Only a $1000 bond? That seems low...

    The gist (I think) is if he violates this judges order - that makes an easy case for contempt and, cross fingers, the pokey.

    You could argue against any law citing "enforcement" - sure they are not exactly checking IDs at FS land but if this moran posts more crap or gets photo'd/video'd - I doubt the judge would be pleased.

    What's his deal? Does he just enjoy being a total douche, or does he actually have some kind of platform?

    I stand corrected. I had previously assumed that Bobby Shitstain was the biggest IRL poser douchebag in here.

    The former. Just has that unnatural square jaw look. Knew a few juicers in college and saw it develop in them. Could be hereditary of course. But might also explain the aggressive, erratic behavior. Seen that side of it too.

    Just speculating recklessly.

    That's one of those sucker photos people who want to look important pay five or ten thousand for.
    15 seconds near a prez to get a shot and look important.
    I'm sure Obama was like, "Next!"

    David Lesh recently spent two days driving in the presidential motorcade and meeting with president Obama to discuss how FD's recent guerrilla marketing tactics could be applied to his reelection campaign.
    Ironically it was Trump who adopted Lesh’s tactics

    He’s not rich. He’s never been rich. It’s a schtick that drives his brand.
