Former Alaska lawmaker Zach Fansler to be arraigned on June 21 in Juneau

By  | 

Anchorage (KTUU) — Bethel's former House representative in the Alaska Legislature is scheduled to be arraigned on June 21 in Juneau on a single count of harassment in the second degree.

First reported by the Juneau Empire, court records show Fansler is due to appear at Juneau's Dimond Courthouse at 1:15 p.m. on June 21.

The charge stems from a January incident in which Fansler allegedly hit a woman, rupturing her eardrum during a drunken attack at a hotel room.

Fansler resigned on February 12 — 16 days after the initial Juneau Empire report of the alleged assault. Fansler was replaced by Democratic Rep. Tiffany Zulkosky, who was sworn in to the House mid-session on March 9.
