The elder son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin turned himself in to an Anchorage halfway house Wednesday to begin a year in custody, following his conviction for assaulting his father, an official said.
Track Palin was initially scheduled to enter the halfway house Oct. 31 after a judge decided new assault allegations disqualified him from a court program aimed at rehabilitating veterans and said he would have to serve time instead.
But the 29-year-old Army veteran won a delay after his lawyer said a bed at an Anchorage treatment hospital for veterans became available. He checked into the halfway house Wednesday morning, said Trey Watson of Geo Reentry of Alaska Inc., which operates the halfway house.
In September, Palin was arrested after a female acquaintance said he told her that she could not leave his house in Wasilla, took her phone and then hit her in the head, according to court documents.
The woman said they wrestled over the phone and that Palin let her leave after she screamed for help, according to an Alaska State Troopers affidavit. Troopers said Palin told them the two were arguing over how they said goodbye and that any injuries the woman had were self-inflicted.
Palin faces misdemeanor charges including assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in that case.
Track Palin’s plea arrangement called for him to serve 10 days in jail if he completed the therapeutic program and a year behind bars if he did not. Once Palin checks in to the halfway house, it’s up to the Department of Corrections to determine if he will serve the time at the halfway house, on house arrest or in jail, according to Anchorage District Attorney Richard Allen.
For some reason, the Associated Press does not want to name the woman who Track assaulted, but of course, we all know it was his former fiance, and the mother of his latest child, Jordan Loewe.
The same woman who he also assaulted back in 2016, and the same woman he will assault again once he is back on the streets.
Because Track is a Palin, and Palins simply do not change their spots.
Especially if they keep slipping through the fingers of justice as Track has managed to do time and time again.
