At least one Sitka family has been taken in by the scheme. The extortionists suggest their victims obtain prepaid VISA gift cards or check cards at the grocery store. Christine Johnson, the administrative director of the Alaska Court system issued a statement Friday morning (12-1-17): “The Alaska Court system does not attempt to collect money from any person for failing to serve as a juror. Law enforcement will not be sent by the court to anyone’s home to collect unpaid fines for failing to serve as a juror.”
