HOLDING OF APPEALS COURT:
APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Defendants, including prominent Anchorage businessman Josef F. Boehm, aged 61, were involved in sex trafficking of children and drug distribution. Defendants recruited juveniles using cocaine. The Defendants then had sex with the juveniles and paid them with cocaine and money. Each of their victims were U.S. citizens, and at least 8 of whom were minor. All of the defendants pled guilty to various charges. In particular, defendant Boehm, as part of his plea agreement, agreed to forfeit his residence and provide $1.2 million in a trust fund for the benefit of the victims. Boehm's penalty represented the first time a trust fund had been set up in Alaska, and potentially in the United States, for the benefit of minor victims of trafficking and drug distribution. All defendants were sentenced to serve time in prison, ranging from 3 to 13 years. In 2009, Miranda Ditullio brought civil charges against Boehm. The proceedings are ongoing.
