More people have been charged for distributing illegal drugs. According to the Alaska attorney general's office, nine people were indicted in six separate cases for selling drugs in Kodiak. 

The attorney general said in a press release Monday that the charges were brought forward as part of the statewide drug enforcement effort by the Department of Law. The drug enforcement prosecutor in Anchorage worked with the Kodiak District Attorney's office to charge the nine suspects.

According to the attorney general, those charged are:

  • Hannah Clark, third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance
    Clark was indicted on an alleged offense that happened in September. The attorney general says at the time of the indictment, Clark was on conditions of release for another drug case.

  • Jomer Abalanza, second- and third-degree misconduct with a controlled substance; second- and third-degree misconduct involving a weapon

  • Zachary Trieselmann, third-degree misconduct with a controlled substance
    Trieselmann is Abalanza's co-defendant.

  • Roderick Baldugo and Elmer Morales, second- and third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance

  • Robert Trujillo-Tolentino, second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance

  • Summer Suydam, second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance

  • Janice Marie Alexanderoff and co-defendant Sineti Delara, second- and third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance

The attorney general says charges in the second-degree for misconduct involving a controlled substance have a maximum sentence of 20 years. Charges in the third-degree have a maximum of 10 years.

Weapons charges in the second-degree have a maximum of 10 years; charges in the third-degree have a maximum of five years. Under Alaska law, if the suspects are convicted, their sentences will be based on the seriousness of their offenses and prior criminal histories.
