Change of plea hearing set in Ziegler case

A former co-owner of Alliance Realty in Ketchikan likely will avoid trial. Robert “Zig” Ziegler appeared before Superior Court Judge William Carey during a hearing in Ketchikan Monday.

Ziegler’s attorney apparently reached an agreement with Ketchikan’s former Assistant District Attorney James Scott. The judge agreed to schedule a change-of-plea hearing for 1 p.m. November 11th at 1. Scott now is the district attorney in Juneau. He phoned in for Monday’s hearing.

Ziegler and his former business partner, Roger Stone, were charged with a number of felony counts of misapplication of property. Prosecutors argue that the men misallocated clients’ funds for personal use.

Stone pleaded guilty to one felony count earlier this year.
