Couple to be sentenced for sex abuse in Sitka

Posted: Monday, September 09, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- Sentencing for a Sitka couple convicted of sexually molesting three young girls on Bauer Island has been scheduled for Nov. 15 in Sitka.

Cynthia Sky, 40, and Dick Blue Sky, 48, were convicted by a Juneau jury in May on 32 counts of felony first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and two counts of felony child exploitation. Dick Blue Sky was found guilty on seven separate counts of felony sexual abuse of a minor.

The couple was to be sentenced in Juneau this week, but the hearing was moved to Sitka Superior Court so that it would be held in the community affected by the crime.

The charges against the Skys stem from multiple acts of sex abuse against three girls, who ranged in age from 3 to 13 when the alleged abuse took place from 1994 to 2001 on the island 40 miles north of Sitka. The Skys were arrested Feb. 15, 2001.
