Remote court proceedings frustrate Haines law enforcement

first_imgCrime & Courts | Juneau | Local Government | Southeast | State GovernmentRemote court proceedings frustrate Haines law enforcementJuly 13, 2018 by Abbey Collins, KHNS-Haines Share:The Haines court. (Emily Files)State budget cuts impact several agencies, including the Alaska Court System.For rural communities like Haines, where residents are already separated from some court services, the impacts of a shrinking budget compound existing frustrations.Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg, representatives from Juneau’s Public Defender’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office, Haines District Court, local police department and local government came together for a community meeting in Haines.Pallenberg, who is based in Juneau, covers superior court cases out of Haines, and he’ll soon take over for retiring District Court Judge Thomas Nave, who also covers Chilkat Valley cases.“I feel really strongly the court should bring justice to the people as much as possible and do as many trials as I can in Haines,” Pallenberg said.Some court proceedings are held by telephone because of the time and money it takes to travel between Haines and Juneau.“If I’ve got an hour-long hearing, I can’t necessarily travel to Haines and miss a whole day out of my court calendar to do it,” Pallenberg said. “With the travel time, I’ve got a busy calendar. I can’t always do it. But as much as possible I do. And if I have an all-day trial and the people are here, I’ll come to them.”Haines Police Chief Heath Scott said justice isn’t served adequately when court business is done telephonically.“If we can change behavior through sets of circumstances, like inconveniencing someone to be in front of a judge, and they see that judge, and that judge, in the courtroom, and the structure of the courtroom, holds them accountable to stand up straight, not chew bubblegum, get their hands out of their pockets, and they feel the frustration of being before somebody like yourself, then maybe we can change that behavior,” Scott said.Scott hopes the court can better utilize available technology in the future.“That at least when you are unable to sit here in Haines, and when Judge Asper is unable to sit here in Haines, they are seeing some form of structure,” Scott said. “They are being held in some way accountable.”Assistant District Attorney Amy Paige suggested Haines could benefit from using a poly-com system, to allow for video conferencing.“I think it would help with what Chief Scott pointed out,” Paige said. “Which is that it does increase the severity of the circumstances. People take it more seriously when they can see the judge that’s responding to them.”Clayton Jones provides administrative support for the First Judicial District. He said Haines already has the technology to do this.It’s uncertain whether it would be reliable on a regular basis.“Depending upon the bandwidth that day — we all certainly have felt the effects of having a cruise ship in town and what that does to our bandwidth,” Jones said. “We do face some realities of not being able to use it 100 percent of the time.”Amid state budget cuts, the court system has consolidated responsibilities throughout the state.A few years ago, Haines’ magistrate judge retired and Yakutat Magistrate Mary Kay Germain took over his responsibilities, in addition to covering Yakutat and Hoonah.Soon after, retired Judge Linn Asper came back to the Haines court on a part-time basis.His current appointment ends in about a year.The court system still plans to consolidate magistrate positions, with one judge serving several communities.Court hours have also been reduced in recent years.Haines Borough Manager Debra Schnabel called the reduction of court services “alarming.”“It’s alarming and it’s tragic,” Schnabel said. “That is what we’re supposed to be doing is carrying justice. And it’s not getting done.”Budget cuts have affected resources for state prosecutors as well.Paige still takes on as many local cases as she can.“I at least take every case that comes from the Haines Borough Police Department seriously,” Paige said. “I prosecute as many as I can. Not because I want to send people to jail but because it increases the quality of life and it can really help people if they can get into rehabilitation services.”Share this story:last_img read more
