Two Haines men were indicted by a Juneau grand jury last week. Each faces multiple charges of sexual abuse of a minor.
The charges are from May, when, according to court documents, 35-year-old Stephen Brower and 25-year-old William Dale Whittington each allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old multiple times on the same day.
Whittington faces four counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree, a class B felony. Each of the charges are from the same day, in separate locations.
He was arraigned on Thursday in Juneau Superior Court. He pleaded not guilty and asked for a jury trial. The court set his bail at $45,000.
Whittington is also the suspect in a recent library burglary case in Haines.
Brower faces two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree. As in Whittington’s case, both charges are from the same day, in separate locations.
He was arraigned in Juneau Superior Court on Friday, where he pleaded not guilty and requested a trial. His bail remains at $10,000.
The jury trial is scheduled Jan. 30 in Haines.
