Ranger arrested on sexual assault charges

Posted: Wednesday, August 12, 2009

A National Park Service law enforcement ranger working in Glacier Bay for the summer has been arrested on two counts of felony sexual assault.

Dorian Curry, 31, was arrested Monday by the Alaska State Troopers at the Bartlett Cove employee housing area in Glacier Bay National Park near Gustavus. The Juneau District Attorney's office filed charges in Superior Court on Tuesday alleging Curry sexually assaulted someone in 2008 and another person in 2009. The felonies are each punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

Curry is being held in the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on $20,000 bail. He was arrested following an investigation by the state troopers and the National Park Service.

The National Park Service put Curry on administrative leave during the investigation and his law enforcement commission was suspended, according to a park service press release. The federal agency is taking steps to terminate his employment, according to the release.
