Posted: Sunday, August 16, 2009

A grand jury on Friday indicted a National Park Service ranger working in Glacier Bay 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 alleges Curry sexually assaulted one woman Sept. 1, 2008, and another on July 5, 2009, both of whom were believed to be passed out drunk at the time. 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. He worked as a seasonal law enforcement ranger. The federal agency is taking steps to terminate his employment, according to the release.
