Posted: Sunday, March 16, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A former high school administrator avoided jail time but was fined for operating a poker parlor.

The poker parlor operated by former Chugiak Vice Principal James McDowell was raided by Alaska State Troopers in 2007.

Superior Court Judge Eric Smith said McDowell's record will be cleared if he doesn't break the law for two years. He ordered McDowell to pay a $5,000 fine.

Troopers said they found more than $9,000 in cash and 14 poker tables at the site.

McDowell was one of eight people charged.
