WHY IS CHIP IN JAIL?
Chip was sentenced to jail for fifteen months in the anchorage complex Correction Complex from July 2017 with charges of perjury and offering incorrect statements to the police authorities in July 2011. It started with Chip Hailstone filing statements against a state trooper with claims that the trooper has physically assaulted his daughter who was at the age of seventeen years then. Chip Hailstone accused the trooper of holding his daughter’s hand inappropriately.
In another allegation, he accused someone of pointing a gun at his daughter, Tingmaq during a fierce confrontation which also involves his adopted son, John and others with a family in Noorvik. In his admission, he confirmed that these incidents are capable of truncating the safety of his family and it is better to inform the police. This led him to file a restraining order for his daughter against Trooper Blitz as he accused the officer of making sexual advances towards Tingmaq, his daughter when they were interrogated.
On the contrary, Hailstone’s claims about the sexual advances towards his daughter were countered by the testimony of Blitz’s colleague, Young. In the words of Trooper Young, he said his colleague, Trooper Blitz held Tingmaq in an escort position and offered an apology for the act, and Chip Hailstone is not oblivious of the excuse provided by Trooper Blitz.
Chip Hailstone failed to provide proofs to defend his claims, and he was charged with false statements against a state trooper despite the intervention of attorney Kerry who said the police could not confirm if the Hailstone’s allegations are false. Due to a lack of evidence, Chip Hailstone will be in prison until October 2018 when his 15-month jail term is completed.
