    Another repeat offender that has been in and out of jail for years. I hope the homeowners aren’t holding their breath hoping this guy will do any real jail time. All the hard work Kenai police are doing will go down the toilet once one of these worthless judges gets their hands on the case

  • DA better make sure hard time is in store for this felon.

    There is no such thing as hard time in Alaska. Look at that idiot who blew the face off the guy a year or two ago in “self defense”, in other words a drug deal gone bad. He got what, 7 years with time served. Now take 1/3 off that for good behavior which is automatic. Now take another 1/3 off that for furlough (Early out). All he has to do is be good and do some worthless classes and he will be out the door in no time. Now multiply that by what, a few hundred for Wildwood jail alone and none of those people do any real time in jail time
