ANCHORAGE — An Alaska man convicted of conspiracy in Alaska’s political corruption scandal is being sought by Florida authorities on a charge of child sexual battery.
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s office told The Anchorage Daily News an arrest warrant was issued for former Alaska halfway house mogul Bill Weimar on Monday.
The alleged victim was under 12 years old, according to information posted on the sheriff’s website.
A spokesman for the Sarasota Police Department, Capt. Paul Sutton, said the case against Weimar was being investigated by a detective in the sheriff’s office.
Weimar was once the principal owner of the Allvest Corp., which had a chain of halfway houses around Alaska that contracted with the Alaska Department of Corrections to house state prisoners, usually six months before their terms were up. Allvest also had a drug and alcohol testing facility.
