Property Crimes

When most people think about property crimes, they think about vandalism or robbery. 

However, property crimes includes the offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. The premise of these theft-type offenses is the taking of money or property, but there is no force or threat of force against the victims. The property crime category includes arson because the offense involves destruction of property.

These offenses range in severity depending on value taken and/or the means which the property was procured. Some of the “minor” offenses can have lasting effects on your record. Not many employers would be interested in hiring individuals with any type of property offense on their record. Therefore, these cases must be defended aggressively as possible, and our team is here to help.

Other Criminal Defense areas we specialize in

Criminal Appeals

Being found guilty of a crime can cause you to believe that all hope is lost, your record is permanently stained, and that you are in fact a criminal.  In Alaska, most people found guilty of a crime have the ability to appeal the verdict.

Drug and Alcohol Crimes

The relationship between drugs, alcohol, and crime is complex. Most directly, it is a crime to buy, use, possess, manufacture, or distribute illegal drugs. Drugs and alcohol also impact crime indirectly via the effects they have on users’ behavior and by their association with violence and other illegal activity.

Drunk Driving (DUI)

A Driving Under the Influence, or Operating Under the Influence, charge (“DUI”) is serious business that can change your life. Police, prosecutors, and the courts treat DUI charges very seriously. A DUI charge can easily turn into a conviction without proper legal representation.

Post-Conviction Relief (PCR)

Once your appellate rights are exhausted, there is yet another way to challenge your conviction. The next step is post-conviction relief or PCR where you may raise new claims that were not available to you on direct appeal. Requiring experience on both sides — as both prosecutor and criminal defense attorney in Alaska.

Probation

Probation gives you freedom to live your life outside of jail. You can, however, be forced to serve the original sentence if you violate the conditions of your probation. You need an experienced team on your side to assist you at your probation violation hearing.

Sex Crime

Being charged with a sex crime is terrifying. The confusion, anxiety, and social stigma can be a difficult burden to carry alone. What started as a nice evening and ended in what you thought was consensual sex, could turn into a lengthy jail sentence and lifelong sex offender registration. Our team is here to help.

Weapons Offenses

In Alaska, weapons charges include unlawful possession, unlawful carrying of a concealed weapon, unlawful discharge of a firearm, illegal sale or trafficking, or misconduct involving weapons. Alaska punishes these offenses harshly, which can damage your reputation and negatively affect your Constitutional rights.
