A former Alaska legislative staffer is facing up to two months in jail and two years of probation after agreeing to plead guilty to driving under the influence and assault.


Police say Carolyn Kuckertz — who served as press secretary for the Senate Majority at the time — was drunk when she hit two women with her car in the parking lot of the downtown Anchorage Legislative Information Office in June. One of the women struck was hospitalized and later released with no major injuries.


Kuckertz was originally charged with three felonies and misdemeanor DUI. District Attorney Clint Campion says Kuckertz has agreed to a plea deal of a consolidated assault charge and DUI.


A change of plea hearing is slated for Aug. 31. The Senate terminated Kuckertz’s contract after her arrest.
