Sitka prosecutor suspended by state after she was charged with assaulting boyfriend

JUNEAU — Alaska’s assistant district attorney in Sitka was put on administrative leave after she was arrested and charged with assault over the weekend.

According to court documents, Amy Michelle Williams assaulted her boyfriend while trying to force him out of the home they had shared since January.

A Sitka police officer said the boyfriend was left bloody during the fight, and Williams also was injured.

According to court documents, neighbors told the officer that the pair had many loud arguments and at least one prior physical altercation.

Contacted through an acquaintance, Williams declined to comment.

Williams has worked for the state since August 2008 as an assistant district attorney, according to her LinkedIn profile.

“The Department of Law will ensure there is coverage in the Sitka office,” said assistant attorney general Maria Bahr.
