Juneau man indicted on multiple sexual abuse of minor charges

If convicted, the suspect faces 99 years imprisonment.

A man arrested last week on sexual abuse of a minor charges was indicted by a Juneau grand jury for a half a dozen felony charges.

Craig Foster, 61, was indicted on two counts of felony first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, two counts of felony second-degree sexual abuse of a minor, one count of felony first-degree indecent exposure and one count of felony distribution of indecent material to minors.

The charges stem from contact with a 10-year-old in 2019 to 2020, according to an Alaska Department of Law.

The case was investigated by the Juneau Police Department, who arrested Foster on April 26, the Empire previously reported.

Foster is currently in custody, with bail set at $100,000. If convicted, Foster faces 99 years imprisonment, according to the law department.

The department is encouraging anyone with further information on Foster’s alleged activities to contact a law enforcement organization.
