Anchorage Man Sentenced for Providing Alcohol to Minors Leading to Fatal Collision in 2014

April 7, 2017

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) Today, Superior Court Judge Paul Olson  sentenced 32 year old Robert Green to prison for providing alcohol to minors which led to a fatal collision in February 2014. Following a seven day trial in November 2016, Green was convicted by an Anchorage jury of two counts of felony furnishing alcohol to a person under 21.

The evidence at trial showed that on February 20, 2014, at approximately 3:23 a.m., the Anchorage Police Department responded to a single vehicle collision on O’Malley Road. The driver of the vehicle died as a result of the collision and two other occupants suffered injuries and were treated at a local hospital. All of the occupants of the vehicle were under the age of 21 and were under the influence of alcohol. Investigator Steve Dunn of the Anchorage Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit investigated the incident and determined that then-29 year old Robert Green provided the alcohol to the occupants of the vehicle. Green was indicted in July 2014 for his role in the collision.
At the sentencing hearing, Judge Olson explained that he believed the Legislature clearly intended to protect our youth through this law and to impose consequences to adults who provide alcohol to minors. Judge Olson sentenced Green to two years with one year suspended and two years on felony probation.
