Track Palin pleaded guilty to a charge of misdemeanor criminal trespassing in the first degree on Tuesday.
A spokesperson for the Anchorage, Alaska District Attorney’s office confirms to ET that Sarah Palin's 29-year-old son pleaded guilty in Veteran’s Court to a charge of misdemeanor criminal trespassing in the first degree on June 19. He did not appear in court on that day, but called in from his home in Wasilla.
Track received a 10-day jail sentence and must complete a rehabilitation program in the veteran’s court. Should he fail to complete the program, Track must serve a full year in jail. Upon successful completion of the program, Track's charge he pleaded to will be downgraded to a second degree.
“Everything that I’m seeing, so far, is a guy who is motivated to improve himself,” Anchorage District Attorney Richard Allen told CBS affiliate KTVA. “He is in school. He’s doing everything that is asked of him. He got a deal that is very much in line with what these folks get. So far so good.”
Track was arrested in Alaska on charges of domestic violence on Dec. 16, 2017. He was arraigned on three counts: felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief for causing up to $500 in property damage. According to a police report, Track was allegedly drinking while on painkillers when he entered his family home through a window, beat his father and called police "peasants."
The arrest was the second time Track had been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in two years.
