This is the first in a five-part Channel 2 series on teen prostitution and its toll in Alaska. Reporter Rhonda McBride begins with a look at a prostitution ring in Anchorage, provided by a woman who was a part of it. Prostitution is not an easy subject to talk about, especially for those who have engaged in it -- but Heather McMenamin-Bozart, a recovering drug addict who spent 10 years enslaved to a sex trafficker named Don Webster, wants to...

Nearly three years after a small majority of Bethel voters approved unlimited alcohol sales, a Channel 2 News investigation reveals that crime rates in the region have increased, especially in some of the 56 smaller villages nearby. In October 2009 Bethel voters decided, 615 to 523, to change Bethel from a "damp" community to a "wet" one, removing the previous alcohol import limit of 10.5 ounces per person per month. Perhaps because of the fact there are still no liquor stores or bars located in the Kuskokwim River's main port city, population 6,080, there is a popular opinion among many Bethel residents that not much has changed.

With help from the First Alaskans Institute, two Anchorage radio personalities say they're working hard to heal a rift that began with a mock commercial they say was meant to be funny. Some have called it a journey aimed at healing racism in Anchorage, and on Wednesday KWHL broadcasters Bob Lester and Mark Colavecchio sat down in a traditional Native talking circle to say they've come a long way -- and learned the lesson that humor doesn't have to hurt. Lester and Colavecchio walk an on-air tightrope, where their brand of irreverent humor sometimes teeters on the edge of bad taste.

The murder of 15-year-old Jonathon Hartman is described as one of the worst crimes ever committed in Fairbanks -- but to this day, a debate rages over the four suspects convicted of his 1997 death and whether they actually committed the crime. Fairbanks police say a solid and fast-moving investigation led them to the suspects, with their hard work backed up by a court system that delivered four murder convictions and a lengthy round of appeals. Yet others in the Interior argue the investigation was flawed, saying police abused their power and as a result the wrong people were convicted.

According to a Tuesday statement from Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Beth Ipsen, an emergency order from Department of Public Safety Commissioner Joe Masters has extended the deadline to May 1 for all roads in Alaska, due to recent snow and road conditions. Under state law roads north of 60 degrees latitude, as well as the Sterling Highway, always fall under the May 1 deadline.

Fairbanks police felt their case against the suspects in the 1997 death of 15-year-old Jonathon Hartman, known as the Fairbanks Four, was solid. They had confessions from two of the young men and an eyewitness -- but that didn't ease the rising tension in Fairbanks as trial dates neared.       On Oct. 21, 1997, nine days after Hartman's death, Kevin Pease, Marvin Roberts, Eugene Vent and George Frese were led into a Fairbanks courtroom. They were arraigned on charges including murder, but the four suspects pleaded not guilty to all the allegations.
