Eagle River woman sentenced for sexual assault
Lagina Griffiths, 41, of Eagle River, was sentenced to four years of jail time for the offense of attempted sexual assault in the second degree. Griffiths pled guilty to this offense on Oct. 28, 2013.
According to the assistant district attorney’s office, Griffiths attempted to sexually assault a 25-year-old airman from the U.S. Air Force who was in Alaska for an exercise. The airman was stationed in Japan at the time. Griffiths agreed to give him a ride home to his hotel room on JBER but then took him to her home in Anchorage. The airman went to bed on Griffiths’ couch but was awoken when Griffiths attempted to sexually assault him.
Griffiths originally faced a sentence of two to 12 years in prison.
