City Of Bethel Will Follow Due Process In Cab Driver Bootlegging Allegations

Dean Swope

The City of Bethel says that no action is required from the city at this time in response to the indictment of multiple Bethel taxi drivers on bootlegging charges. 

A press release from City Manager Pete Williams says that there have been no convictions at this time, and that the city will follow the constitutional principle of "innocent until proven guilty" when it comes to cab driver permits.

Perhaps the best known broadcasting voice in Alaska, Steve Heimel began his career at a radio station in rural Pennsylvania and worked his way up to two of the nation's Top Ten commercial media markets. He moved to public radio in 1974 for greater creative latitude and moved to Alaska in 1982, working for the statewide Alaska Public Radio Network for 32 years as Managing Editor, morning news announcer and host of the statewide “Talk of Alaska” call-in show.
