Tok man sentenced to 14 months for assaults

Posted: Monday, May 24, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A Tok man found naked on top of a sleeping woman this winter has pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault and has been sentenced to prison.

A Superior Court judge sentenced 27-year-old Rex Defrance to six months in prison and also revoked eight months of suspended time from a 2007 assault in which Defrance brutally beat a man and threatened to throw him in the Tanana River.

Defrance has been in jail since his Jan. 9 arrest at a Fairbanks apartment. He had initially been charged with third-degree sexual assault.

Defrance asked to be released for a few months to help his father move, but Judge Michael McConahy rejected the request.
