A Nikiski man charged with the assault of his brother, criminal mischief and resisting arrest was sentenced to jail time and anger management by District Court Judge Sharon Illsley on Monday at the Kenai Courthouse.
Walter Moore, 21, pleaded guilty to a count of assault in the fourth degree, while the counts of criminal mischief in the fifth degree and resisting arrest were dismissed by the prosecution, according to sentencing documents.
Moore was arrested on July 5 in Soldotna after Alaska State Troopers responded to a disturbance at a residence, according to a trooper dispatch. In an affidavit written by Trooper Jason Bohac, Moore’s brother reported that Moore had been drinking, became upset and started breaking items in the residence.
“(The brother) stated he attempted to stop Walter Moore from breaking the items by trying to talk to him and then physically restraining (him),” Bohac wrote. “(He) said he had been struck multiple times in the face and head by Walter Moore. I observed redness, swelling and bruising on (the brother’s) face and head.”
Moore was sentenced to 90 days in jail with 85 days suspended. He will be required to complete an anger management program by the end of the year.
