The general manager of the Capital City Weekly, who was arrested as a fugitive from justice, made another appearance in court on Wednesday.
Dale Edward Smith, 50, was arrested at his downtown office on December 10th on an outstanding warrant for felony non-support of a child.
Smith’s Alaska attorney, public defender Tim Ayer, told the court that another hearing is planned with Kansas officials on Friday over continued payment of his obligation and possible dismissal of an extradition request.
Smith himself didn’t say anything in court. But he smiled and winked at the Juneau Police Officer who arrested him as he left the courtroom.
Smith is currently out of custody after the posting of $10,000 cash bail.
The next Alaska hearing in the case is planned for March 11th.
