Palin is a war veteran who served in Iraq. He pled guilty to criminal trespass in the case.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The elder son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin turned himself into an Anchorage halfway house Wednesday to begin a year in custody, following his conviction for assaulting his father, an official said.
Track Palin was initially scheduled to enter the halfway house Oct. 31 after a judge decided new assault allegations disqualified him from a court program aimed at rehabilitating veterans and said he would have to serve time instead.
But the 29-year-old Army veteran won a delay after his lawyer said a bed at an Anchorage treatment hospital for veterans became available. He checked into the halfway house Wednesday morning, said Trey Watson of Geo Reentry of Alaska Inc., which operates the halfway house.
Palin in December 2017 was accused of breaking into his parents’ home and leaving his father, Todd, bleeding from cuts on his head, authorities have said.
