2 members of 'Alaskan Bush People' family sentenced to jail

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A judge has sentenced two members of the family featured on the reality TV show Alaskan Bush People to 30 days in jail after they were accused of applying for checks from Alaska’s oil wealth fund even though they weren’t entitled.

Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg imposed the sentence Monday for 63-year-old Billy Brown and one of Brown’s sons, Joshua.

Both pleaded guilty to unsworn falsification. Their sentences also include restitution, community service and probation, and neither will be eligible for future Alaska Permanent Fund dividends.


the season finale had the browns forced to relocate to seattle after another bear attack demolished their makeshift home in chichagoff island..heartbroken..they knew that the bears would always be present because its their home. the browns are actually tresspassing on their land.

Helluva mustache he's sporting!


I finally understand the Alaska Permanent Fund dividends - had a friend and his girlfriend receive it last year and he described it briefly  - so google queen read more on it.  Started in 1982.  This is from a 2014 article but I'm sure the info is the same.


Alaska's Permanent Fund was established by a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1976 requiring a portion of state oil revenues be put into a savings account to be available for the distant future, when North Slope oil fields are tapped out.  <snip>

Alaska residents must live in the state an entire calendar year before becoming eligible. Governor Sean Parnell said the oldest applicant was 109 years old while the youngest were infants.

The dividend remains an important perk of Alaska residency and a major economic force, used for college and retirement savings, big-ticket purchases, vacations and bill-paying.

Economists have credited it for keeping many low-income families out of poverty. The annual announcement typically gets set against the backdrop of retailers promoting discounts, often on big-ticket items like electronics, furniture, cars and air travel.
