Any charges reported in these press releases are merely accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
In early 2018 the Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Wildlife Investigations Unit, began an investigation into Dana DeBernardi, age 42 of Anchorage, regarding the take of a black bear in the Bear Valley area of Anchorage during June of 2017. Investigation revealed that DeBernardi had falsified a black bear sealing certificate by claiming she had shot the bear and then fabricated a story on a defense of life or property form issued by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game about the sequence of events that led to the take of the bear.
On 6/7/18 DeBernardi was issued a summons to appear in court for the charges of Unsworn Falsification and Tampering with Public Records, both of which are class A misdemeanors. Her arraignment date is 6/29/18 in the District Court at Anchorage in the Nesbett Courthouse.
