ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Two members of the family associated with the Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” have agreed to plead guilty to lying on the application for the yearly oil revenue check residents receive once they meet certain requirements.
KTUU-TV reports that 62-year-old Billy Brown and his son, 31-year-old Joshua Brown, have agreed to repay the state for dividends they received despite failing to meet residency requirements. They have also agreed to serve two years of probation, under a proposed plea agreement.
As part of the proposed plea agreement, the pair will also have to serve 40 hours each of community service, which the judge specified may not be filed as part of a reality show.
A judge will decide whether to accept the plea agreement in a hearing Thursday.
