ANCHORAGE - A 24-year-old Anchorage man has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for assaulting an unconscious soldier two years ago.
Nicholas Worley was convicted in February of beating and stomping Corey Czechowski with a co-defendant, Adam Cornelison, on Sept. 21, 2008, in an alley behind a downtown bar.
Witnesses called for help, chased the suspects and reported their location to police. Worley and Cornelison were arrested several blocks away.
Czechowski suffered a fractured jaw.
Anchorage Superior Court Judge David Stewart told Worley the assault was "startling" and "without provocation." He sentenced Worley to 14 years with six and one-half suspended, plus 10 years probation.
