Juneau man convicted of rape and assault

Posted: Wednesday, February 27, 2008

JUNEAU - A jury convicted Juneau resident Alper Johnson on Friday of second-degree sexual assault and third-degree assault for the February 2007 rape of a Juneau woman at a party in the Mendenhall Valley.

Johnson was arrested by warrant last August, seven months after the attack, following a grand jury indictment that charged him with the two crimes and was based on a Juneau police investigation.

According to court documents, Johnson knew his victim but did not have a close relationship with her.

Johnson's trial lasted several days and included graphic testimony, witnesses and DNA evidence. Juneau Superior Court Judge Patricia Collins set sentencing for April 21.
