30 days in prison for man who broke store's door

A man was sentenced to serve 30 days in prison and to pay about $700 in restitution for breaking a glass door at Alaska Cache Liquor in downtown Juneau.

Warren C. Belford, 27, was sentenced in Juneau District Court on March 22 after he pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal mischief for property damage, a class ‘A’ misdemeanor. A copy of the judgment was made available to the Empire on Wednesday.

The store clerk told police Belford and another man were involved in a disturbance at the store on March 10, according to the police citation. The citation states the clerk told police when he asked Belford to leave, Belford became angry and deliberately kicked the glass door, breaking it.

The court misdemeanor judgment shows Levy imposed 180 days in jail with 150 suspended, meaning there’s 30 days to serve; a $1,000 suspended fine; two years of probation; and $701.55 in restitution. Levy also ordered the defendant to contact Juneau Alcohol Safety Action Program for screening and treatment, if it’s recommended.

Everyone was present for the Legislature’s first day except for Sen. Frank Ferguson, D-Kotzebue, who resigned shortly after his election because of health problems. Taking his place was Kotzebue businessman and Native leader Willie Hensley, whom Gov. Steve Cowper appointed for the position until the 1988 elections.
