There's more bad news for Sarah Palin's son. Track Palin, who is the son of the Former Republican vice-presidential nominee, has checked into a halfway house, reported PEOPLE.
The stay at the halfway house in Anchorage, Alaska, was mandated by the court after he assaulted his father last year. He will serve a year there or in jail.
As we previously reported, Track pled guilty to first-degree criminal trespass as part of a plea deal in June. That stemmed from his alleged 2017 assault of his father.
He was set to enter the halfway house after a judge decided he was no longer eligible for a therapeutic program for veterans. That's because he was arrested for another assault in September 2018.
Now that 29-year-old Track has checked in to the halfway house, the Department of Corrections will decide if he serves time there, on house arrest, or in jail.
In December 2017, Track was arrested after he broke into his parents' house at night and started hitting his father. He came in through a window, tackled his father to the ground, and began hitting him in the head.
Track pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal trespass as part of a plea deal. He was originally charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault, and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
In September 2018, the army veteran was arrested after he allegedly “assaulted an acquaintance at his residence." Reportedly, when she tried to call for help, he took her phone away. He pled not guilty to the charges in that case.
This was Track's third assault charge. In 2016, he allegedly punched his then-girlfriend in the face. He also pointed a gun at her at his family’s home in Wasilla. In that case, he pled guilty to misdemeanor possession of a firearm while intoxicated. Other charges were dismissed.
Please pray for the Palin family. This is a stressful time for them!
