The Rabinowitz Courthouse in Fairbanks.

A 41-year-old Fairbanks man has been charged with felony second-degree sexual abuse of a minor for reportedly molesting an underage girl.

Billy Druck was arraigned Nov. 6 in Fairbanks Superior Court after he allegedly inappropriately touched a 14-year-old victim on multiple occasions, according to the criminal complaint.

According to court documents, Druck would ask the girl to sit directly on his lap and bounce her in the position. Druck would also reportedly pull the victim’s hips towards his and make inappropriate comments about the girl’s body and sexual behavior, charging documents stated. The victim told Alaska State Troopers that the abuse had been happening for a few years.

A witness told authorities that she had seen Druck have “a strong reaction” to the girl sitting on his lap, which concerned her, according to charging documents.

Druck reportedly told troopers that the girl had a lying problem and apologized for her “inappropriate comments,” the complaint stated.

According to court records, Druck was convicted of second-degree murder after stabbing a 23-year-old man in November 2000. He was sentenced to 30 years, with five suspended following a no contest plea in 2001. Druck has also been charged with third-degree misconduct involving weapons and urinating in public in the state of Alaska.

Druck is expected to appear in Fairbanks Superior Court on Jan. 19, 2022, for a preliminary hearing. He is currently being held on a $20,000 cash performance bond, according to court records.
