Accused Sex Offender scheduled to strike plea deal.

A 52-year old Delta Junction man is scheduled to strike a plea deal with State attorneys and be sentenced later today (Wednesday) for sexually assaulting a 16 year old girl in 2012. As part of the agreement, Viktor Malyk will plead guilty to a single count of Sexual Assault in the Second Degree.

Malyk will receive a 9-year prison term when he is sentenced in front of Fairbanks Superior Court Judge Douglas Blankenship.

A host of other alleged offenses, that could have resulted in a possible life prison term, had Malyk gone to trial and been convicted, were subsequently dismissed.

According to court records, Malyk held " a position of authority" over the victim in the case when the assault occurred.
