Former Union Employee and Former Assistant Attorney General Both Charged in Forging Scheme
Case involves forged union interest cards at UAA
Court documents say so far investigators have been able to verify that 13 interest cards were not completed or signed by the university staff member whose name appears on the card.
Erin Pohland was the assistant attorney general at the time of the incident in 2010, and she was responsible for providing legal advice to the Alaska Labor Relations Agency, which oversees the union’s petitions and verifies the expression of interest from workers.
Court documents filed on January 30 this year say Pohland and the accused union worker McRoberts were actually friends - and Poland didn't turn in the suspected forged documents to police. Pohland is charged with official misconduct.
