FAIRBANKS — A Fort Wainwright man pleaded guilty last week to pointing a gun at his ex-girlfriend, reaching a plea agreement on the day his trial was scheduled to begin.
He was given a 39-day jail sentence, time he has already served.
Randon Everette Berg, 25, was charged with third-degree felony assault after his ex-girlfriend reported in January that Berg came into her Fairbanks home, pointed a gun at her and pleaded for her to take him back. Two other friends told police they witnessed the confrontation and said Berg pointed the gun at them, according to the criminal complaint against him. They described Berg’s relationship with the primary victim as on-again-off-again boyfriend.
On Nov. 9, the last week day before Berg was scheduled to go to trial, prosecutors said his ex-girlfriend called to change her story and ask for the charges to be dismissed, according to court log notes of the hearing.
The prosecutor offered, and Berg accepted, a plea of misdemeanor assault with a time-served sentence.
A charge against Berg of unlawful contact, for allegedly going to the Circle M Bar with the victim in June despite a court order to not contact her, was dismissed.
