BBNC Board Member Resigns After Sexual Assault Charges
Facing sexual assault charges, Sergie Chukwak has resigned from the board of Bristol Bay Native Corporation, where he had served since 2010. BBNC Board Chair Joseph Chythlook, said in a written statement today that Chukwak’s decision to voluntarily resign will allow the Board to “focus on effectively serving” its shareholders. The State has charged Chukwak with sexual assault from an incident that happened on Nov. 5 in Naknek. His alleged victim is deceased, and the State has yet to determine how the case against Chukwak will proceed without the victim’s testimony.
