Juneau business owner sentenced for peddling drugs

Associated PressJuly 30, 2012 

JUNEAU -- A Juneau business owner has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for helping bring ecstasy and cocaine from Washington to Juneau.

Kenneth Hausinger, 45, appeared Friday in U.S. District Court in Juneau.

The Juneau Empire reports Hausinger is the owner of Southeast Computers and Photography. He and one of his employees, 34-year-old Darren Louis Wigg, were arrested last July. Authorities say they intercepted a package containing about 3,000 ecstasy pills with a street value of more than $75,000 and about 3 ounces of cocaine valued at $1,500.

Hausinger told the court that he regretted his actions and "wasn't thinking" at the time. Hausinger has a prior criminal conviction for avoiding city sale taxes in excess of $100,000.
