In less than a week, voters in Alaska will decide whether to retain 15 judges statewide. One of them, Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Corey, has been the center of a national controversy and outrage that threatens his future on the bench.

On Sept. 19, Judge Corey accepted a plea deal that let Justin Schneider leave the courtroom without spending any additional time in jail for a midday attack of an Alaska Native woman.

According to court documents, Schneider lured her into his car with the promise of a ride to Muldoon, then took her to a dead-end road in a Turnagain neighborhood where he strangled her unconscious and masturbated on her. He told her he needed her to think she was going to die in order to achieve sexual satisfaction.
