Roland Maw, former executive director of the United Cook Inlet Drift Association, was first charged in January 2016 with a total of twelve felony counts of theft and unsworn falsification. Prosecutors allege Maw applied for and received permanent fund dividends while he was out of Alaska for over 90 days, in each year between 2009 and 2014.
Roland Maw was previously indicted on 12 felony charges of theft and unsworn falsification related to applying for and receiving dividends between 2009 and 2014. Judge Louis Menendez threw out the indictment because of insufficient evidence.
