Juneau man pleads guilty to heroin charge

Posted: March 12, 2012 - 11:01pm

A 25-year-old Juneau man pleaded guilty Monday to a felony drug charge for dealing heroin.

Christopher Waterhouse entered his plea in Juneau Superior Court as part of a plea deal reached with prosecutors with the district attorney’s office. The plea deal calls for six years of prison with four suspended, leaving two years to serve. Waterhouse will also have three years of supervised probation after his release. Waterhouse also admitted the most serious aggravator for sentencing purposes, and he agreed pay $400 in restitution for the drug buy money.

Assistant District Attorney Angie Kemp said Waterhouse sold 0.5 grams of heroin on both Nov. 28 and 29 of last year.

The Alaska Bureau of Investigation’s Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs (SEACAD) conducted the controlled buys, and he was one of three people arrested in Juneau for drug-related offenses on Dec. 1 by SEACAD, Juneau Police Department and the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Services, according to an earlier statement from the Alaska Bureau of Investigation.

Waterhouse was originally charged with three felony charges: two counts for second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and one count for second-degree attempted misconduct involving a controlled substance.

He pleaded guilty to the latter, and the plea deal dismisses the other charges.

Judge Philip Pallenberg scheduled a sentencing hearing for May.
