- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage jury convicts an unlicensed big-game guide of criminal mischief and violating conditions of his release. Wildlife Troopers say that Michael A. Roberts will be sentenced Feb. 7.  Roberts still faces trial on three felony and about 30 misdemeanor charges. Authorities say Roberts operated as an unlicensed guide for years and took out-of-state visitors on hunts. He was out on bail in October 2012 and wearing an ankle monitor when he used a grinder to cut off the device. A manhunt ensued and Roberts was found hiding in a Big Lake home about a week later. Among the charges he still faces are failure to pay about $160,000 in child support and operating an aircraft without a license. Authorities have seized three aircraft from him.
