Shana Louise Neakok, 24, of Point Lay, pleaded guilty to the class B misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct for creating a hazardous condition and reached a plea agreement, through which two additional charges against her were dropped. She was sentenced to one day in jail with credit for time served, meaning all time has already been served in this case. She must pay a police training surcharge of $50 and an initial jail surcharge of $50, by order of Magistrate Judge David Roghair, effective Dec. 4.

Jesse James Hopson, 25, of Nuiqsut, pleaded guilty to the class A misdemeanor charge of assault in the third degree, for causing fear of injury, which was later reduced to assault in the fourth degree, of which he was ultimately found guilty. He was sentenced to 360 days in jail, with all 360 days suspended. He must pay a police training surcharge of $50 and an initial jail surcharge of $50. He has been placed on probation until Dec. 4, 2019. The knife involved in the incident has been forfeited to the state, and during his probation, Hopson may not have any weapons or participate in subsistence activities. He must also consent to a search for weapons upon with reasonable suspicion. He also may not have any contact with the people listed in the charge, by order of Judicial Officer Angela Greene, effective Dec. 4.
