Alcohol abuse has been found to be a significant contributing factor to criminal activity, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault, throughout the state. Several Alaskan communities have elected to restrict alcohol possession or consumption in various ways – up to and including outlawing it completely. To help these communities achieve their goals, this prosecutor works in a coordinated effort with the Department of Public Safety, local law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Postal Service, and federal law enforcement agencies to focus on interdicting illegal alcohol before it reaches these local option communities. 

 

This prosecutor position is located in Anchorage and primarily handles interdiction prosecution cases and appeals in the Anchorage, Nome, and Kotzebue areas.

This is a statewide position where the attorney will share his or her expertise and resources by providing advice and training to other prosecutors in various District Attorney Offices as well as to local law enforcement.

 

The ideal candidate will possess two to three years of criminal prosecution experience, be highly self-motivated, willing to aggressively charge alcohol related cases, and be able to motivate and manage criminal investigators including actively participating in all stages of an ongoing investigation from initiation to prosecution. Although the unit is seeking an attorney with some relevant experience in the field, all interested attorneys are encouraged to apply for consideration. The applicant’s relevant legal experience and interest in the position should be addressed in the cover letter.

 

Salary is determined by the legal background and experience of the selected candidate. A comprehensive state benefits package is provided.
