ANCHORAGE — Justin Scott Schneider,34, pleaded guilty to a single count of second-degree sexual assault for an August 2017 attack on a 25-year-old Native woman. He will face no jail time.

In the violent sexual assault, Schneider choked the victim and told her he was going to kill her. She passed out. When she came back around, she found semen Schneider had ejaculated on her and was in the process of zipping up his pants.

“Schneider immediately and violently grabbed her neck in a front choke hold with both hands and told her if she screamed, he’d kill her,” wrote APD detective Brett Sarber. “…the man kept squeezing her neck harder, and then told her that he was indeed going to kill her.”

After Schneider left her, the victim called 911 and was taken to the Alaska Native Medical Center, where she was interviewed by police.

“[She] was very traumatized, and was very emotionally upset recalling the event,” detective Sarber wrote. “To the point where she couldn’t hardly speak.”

Schneider was identified by a construction worker and his victim was able to identify him in a lineup.

After his arrest, Schneider was given “house arrest” where he lived with his wife and children.

At his hearing on Wednesday where he made a plea deal, Schneider was given a sentence to two years in prison with one year of it suspended. He was given credit for the time of house arrest, which, in essence, gave this violent sex offender a mere slap on his wrists—with no jail time.

In handing out his sentence, Judge Michael Corey said since Schneider would eventually get out of prison anyway no matter was charges he faced by the state, the general public may as well be ready for the offender to reintegrate into society now.
