Mat-Su Teacher Indicted For Defrauding Hockey Booster Club

By | March 6, 2013

A Matanuska Susitna Borough School District teacher has been indicted on five felony counts related to defrauding a hockey booster club out of $48,000. The school district is reviewing its records since allegations were filed against James “Jamie” Donald Smith, Jr, a teacher at Mat-Su Career and Technical High School and the Colony High School hockey coach. Smith has been charged with defrauding the Alaska Avalanche Junior A booster Club, and faces additional charges of forgery of legal documents, first degree theft and fraudulent use of an access device.

The charges were filed in state Superior Court after an investigation headed by the state Department of Revenue Criminal Investigations Unit, according to Rob Henderson, an assistant attorney general with the state Office of Special Prosecutions.

Smith was a president of the booster club and remains coaching director for the Junior Avalanche.
