Heroin dealer gets 2 years

2 felonies dismissed

A 26-year-old Juneau man was sentenced last week to serve two years in prison for dealing heroin. Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg sentenced Christopher J.P. Waterhouse on May 24 to six years in prison with four years suspended, in accordance with a plea agreement reached with prosecutors.


The plea agreement also required Waterhouse to be on supervised probation three years after his release from prison, and to pay $400 in restitution for the drug buy money.

Waterhouse pleaded guilty to a reduced charge, attempted second-degree drug misconduct, in March.

He was originally charged with three felonies, but the other two were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

Prosecutors said he sold 0.5 grams of heroin on Nov. 28 and 29 of last year.
