Sentencing for Fairbanks Assault Perpetrator


Three and a half years in jail for a 30–year old man police say pushed a woman into the path of a moving truck after an apparent domestic dispute.

During scheduled hearings late Thursday in State Court, Carlos Colbert ("cole–bear") pled guilty to a single count of Felony Assault in the Third Degree.

Court records say last summer, Colbert had been physically assaulting a woman, identified as Sherry Erick, when a second woman, identified in records as "J.J." intervened.

Colbert is said to have pushed "J.J." away in a manner that caused her to fall into the roadway on Noble Street and 10th Avenue, and into the path of a furniture truck.

Witnesses at the scene say the woman fell under the rear tire of the truck sustaining critical injuries.
