Description

Allegations have been made that the State of Alaska discriminates on a geographic and racial basis in the provision of criminal justice services to Alaska Native villages that are isolated from the main road system, including in response to sexual violence against Alaska Natives. Although compelling, the case made against the state is largely anecdotal. This article considers information gathered from the case files of the Alaska State Troopers (AST) and the Alaska Department of Law (DOL) to determine if there is an empirical basis for claims of unequal enforcement of sexual violence statutes.
