Trial date set for former Alliance Realty owners

Roger Stone and Robert “Zig” Zeigler, former co-owners of Alliance Realty in Ketchikan, will face trial on July 8 for multiple felony charges of misapplication of property and second-degree theft. An omnibus hearing on the case will be held April 30th at 2:30pm.

Assistant District Attorney James Scott, prosecutor in the case, requested at a Friday arraignment that the men be freed without bail. Scott cited the longstanding commitment of both men to the community, lack of previous criminal activity and the white-collar nature of the charges. Presiding Superior Court Judge William Carey agreed with Scott, but ordered that Stone and Zeigler have no communication between them until the trial unless it is through their attorneys.
