Anchorage Man Indicted for Stabbing at Peggy's Restaurant

January 16, 2014

Yesterday, 59 year old Olin Anderson was indicted for assault in the first degree. The indictment stems from the stabbing of Thomas Stockmal on December 17, 2013 at Peggy’s Restaurant. The investigation revealed that Anderson stabbed Stockmal inside the East 5th Avenue establishment.

The indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If convicted, Anderson faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Sentencing is based on the judge’s view of the seriousness of the crime and the offender’s criminal history, if any.

CONTACT: Assistant District Attorney Daniel Shorey @ (907) 269-6369 or Daniel.Shorey@alaska.gov at the Anchorage District Attorney’s Office.
