Anchorage Felon sentenced to 105 months in prison for drug charges and illegal possession of 17 firearms

Anchorage, Alaska-U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that an Anchorage man was sentenced yesterday in federal court to 105 months in prison after pleading guilty to drug and gun charges. 

Gus Brant Doulgerakis, 36, of Anchorage, Alaska, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy M. Burgess to 105 months in prison, to be followed by a five year term of supervised release.  Doulgerakis previously pled guilty to possession with the intent to distribute both heroin and cocaine and to possessing firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Courter, who prosecuted the case, Doulgerakis possessed 17 separate firearms as well as other weapons and multiple items of drug paraphernalia, including scales, thousands of dollars in cash, a money counter, and multiple cellular telephones.  His home was also replete with items related to the movie Scarface, a film that glorifies drug trafficking and the use of violence in support of that drug trafficking.

In sentencing Doulgerakis, Judge Burgess emphasized the seriousness of the offenses, noting that there was no doubt in his mind that Doulgerakis was engaged in extremely dangerous illegal activity.  Judge Burgess also noted the effect of crimes like drug dealing on members of the community.

Ms. Loeffler commended the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Anchorage Police Department for their investigation of this case.
