A man who turned himself into police saying he had molested a 9-year-old girl was indicted Friday on 15 counts of sexual abuse of a minor.
Court records say Roy Angashuk, 38, of Fairbanks fondled the girl and instructed her to fondle him multiple times between May and July of this year.
Angashuk shared a Bunnell Street apartment with the 9-year-old and was in a position of authority, according to his grand jury indictment.
Six of the charges are first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, while nine of the charges are second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.
Angashuk has been at the Fairbanks Correctional Center in lieu of $100,000 bail since calling the police on himself July 1 saying he had broken the law and wanted to be picked up by officers.
Shortly after, the police departments dispatch center received a call from a woman stating that Angashuk had told her he had abused her daughter several times. The mother said her daughter confirmed Angashuks statements.
Angashuk was brought to the Fairbanks Police Department, read his Miranda rights and was interviewed by an officer. He told police he had abused the girl at least 10 times in the past.
Angashuk has a criminal history that includes convictions for assault and weapons misconduct.
A conviction of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor carries a sentence of up to 99 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
Alaska sends some of their prisoners to the desert. Heres hoping this guy joins them..
Here's an idea: Put him on one of those crab fishing boats and "accidentially" push him overboard without a survival suit.
"Weapons misconduct" doesn't bother me, but sexual abuse of a 9-year-old sure does. Lock him up and throw away the key.
The part I don't get is why did he turn himself in?
Then he told the girls mother and she had to question the girl to get her to tell her about it.
I suppose he turned himself in so someone would stop him, since he hadn't stopped himself. I'm puzzled about why the girl's mother would doubt it, though.
There are people who have such strong compulsions they cannot stop themselves from doing something they detest.
There are some of these guys who have a shred of a conscience, and they know they're doing something wrong. One of my kids is a police detective who interrogates people like this, and she says there are some with a conscience. They will start crying and confess when they are asked the right way, but the sociopaths who think nothing they do is ever wrong will never admit to anything, even if there are literally photographs of them doing something awful. I think there's hope for the first group, but for the second, I think there should be a little chute behind the judge's bench, and as soon as they are found guilty they should go down that chute and never be seen again...
