Four indictments issued Friday

Drug misconduct, theft and burglary indictments issued

A Juneau grand jury issued four indictments on Friday: two alleging drug misconduct, one for theft and another for burglary, according to the indictments.

Erica M. Elisoff, 38, was indicted on one count of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance for allegedly possessing cocaine on Oct. 13, 2011.

That’s a class ‘C’ felony that carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $50,000 fine.

Michael J. Montero, also 38, was indicted on one count of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance for allegedly possessing oxycodone on June 5.

Ronald J. Smith, 57, was indicted on one count of second-degree theft for allegedly stealing property worth $500 or more, but less than $25,000, from Duck Creek Market on or between March to May 25. That’s a class ‘C’ felony.

Richard J. Aichner, 42, was indicted on three counts in connection to an alleged crime on May 8.

He was charged with first-degree burglary DV for allegedly entering or remaining unlawfully in a dwelling with intent to commit a crime; third-degree criminal mischief DV for allegedly damaging someone’s property in an amount of $500 or more; and second-degree theft for allegedly stealing someone’s property worth $500 or more, but less than $25,000.

First-degree burglary DV is a class ‘B’ felony, which has a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine.

Third-degree criminal mischief DV and second-degree theft are both class ‘C’ felonies.

Indictments are formal accusations of illegal activity, and they are not indicative of guilt.

The district attorney’s office presents cases to the grand jury each Friday.

Cowper was to give a speech directly to the Alaska Legislature discussing the specifics of his recommended cuts.
