Alaska TV Stars Sentenced to Jail Time

Billy Bush, of “Alaskan Bush people,” and one of his sons Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown were both sentenced to 30 days in jail for lying on Permanent Fund dividend applications on Monday, according to the Alaska Dispatch News.

The father son duo pled guilty to one count of second-degree unsworn falsification, which is a misdemeanor. They both star in Discovery’s show “Alaskan Bush People,” however the network told FOX411 the show will not be canceled.

As a part of their plea deal, the two must pay back the dividends they got, give up their rights to ever get a dividend again and complete 40 hours of community service work.

The Brown family called into the hearing on Monday, as Billy Bush said he was in California. Billy Brown’s attorney, James McGowan, argued against jail time for the 61-year-old, referencing his medical conditions, which he said includes seizures and trouble with his kidneys.

“Mr. Brown [is] not the first person to come before the court with significant medical problems,” Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg said, according to the Alaska Dispatch News. (Read more from “Alaska TV Stars Sentenced to Jail Time” HERE)
