Man pleas not guilty to charges of sexual abuse

A man charged with sexually abusing his sister was arraigned in Superior Court at Kenai Courthouse Tuesday.

Christopher Doss, 27, faces six counts of sexual abuse of a minor and six counts of sexual assault of a minor — all of which are felony charges.

Public Defender Andy Pevehouse entered pleas of not guilty for all charges on Doss’s behalf.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Alaska State Troopers, troopers allege Doss sexually abused his sister in July of 2010, while his sister was 13 years old. The affidavit states in an interview the victim told troopers her brother sexually assaulted her while she was babysitting for him on July 19, 2010, and he had sexually assaulted her multiple times in the past.

On July 20, 2010, the report says troopers talked to Doss who denied any sexual contact with his sister and provided a DNA sample to be tested. The results returned from the state crime lab in May 2011 indicated Doss cannot be excluded as the source for much of the sample.

The trooper report states Doss moved to Florida in November 2010.

The charges against Doss were filed on Oct. 12, 2012, and a warrant for Doss’s arrest was issued by Kenai Court on Oct. 30, 2012.

Doss is currently in custody at Wildwood Pretrial Facility.

Superior Court Judge Carl Bauman ordered Doss to have no contact with the alleged victim.

Doss’s next scheduled court date is Sept. 9.
