- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A 40-year-old Fairbanks woman has been convicted of forging signatures on an initiative petition and will serve two years in jail. The state Department of Law says in a release that Deborah Carroll was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to forgery. Carroll was hired by an independent contract to collect signatures for the Alaska Sea Party's petition to re-establish a coastal zone management program. The measure made it onto the August primary ballot, but voters rejected the initiative. An investigation by the State Troopers Alaska Bureau of Investigation of election fraud uncovered the incident after one of the initiative's sponsors reported inconsistencies with the signatures Carroll collected.
