Crime and punishment

Posted: Wednesday, June 05, 2002

I am the mother to one of the child victims in the Sky case. I was told by the district attorney's office in Juneau the sentencing hearing for the Skys will be Aug. 19. I was also told that this is the perfect time for Sitka and all of Southeast Alaska to pull together.

Read Past Stories:

• Girls detail alleged abuse at hands of Sitka couple (May 16, 2002)

• Accused molesters may question girls on the stand (May 16, 2002)

• Sitka sex abuse trial begins in Juneau (May 14, 2002)

You can do so by writing a letter to the judge and the district attorney detailing what (in your opinion) this heinous crime has done to the community as a whole or to you personally and also providing your opinion as to what type of sentence Dick Blue Sky and Cynthia Sky should receive.

The judge reviews these letters and they actually have an impact when he is trying to decide how long of a sentence to give them. Here are the addresses:
