Life in prison possible for alleged sex abuser

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) – A 51-year-old Delta Junction man faces a possible life prison term for the alleged sexual abuse of a 16-year-old girl back in early February.

Viktor Malyk is charged with First and Second Degree Sexual Assault, and Second Degree Sexual Abuse of a Minor, all felony offenses, and Fourth-Degree Child Sexual Abuse, a misdemeanor.

He is accused of engaging in sexual contact with the girl over whom he had a position of authority.

Alaska State Troopers received a report from the girl's parents on February 11th that Malyk had sexually assaulted the girl while she was at his house during the first week of February.

After the alleged incidents, Malyk went to the girl's house and apologized to her parents for "having sexual relations" with her. He wrote an apology letter and claimed he was intoxicated and would seek treatment or face the law.

The girl's parents then called state troopers.
