ANCHORAGE (KTUU) – A Chevak man was sentenced this week to 25 years in prison for sexually abusing his 7-year-old foster daughter, state prosecutors say. He had pleaded guilty to one aggravated charge of second-degree sex abuse of a minor.
The Department of Law says in 2017, Peter Gumlickpuk’s wife walked in on him fondling their foster daughter while he read to the child from the Bible. She confronted him and he confessed to the abuse, the department said.
