By Tegan Hanlon: Anchorage man who attacked sex offenders hopes his story can be a lesson for others
An Anchorage man who attacked three registered sex offenders last year said he wants his story “to serve as a deterrent” to anyone tempted to turn their pain into violence or take the law into their own hands.

That’s what he did in the summer of 2016. He now faces up to 25 years in prison.

“If you have already lost your youth, like me, due to a child abuser, please do not throw away your present and your future by committing acts of violence,” Jason Vukovich wrote in a five-page letter sent to the Anchorage Daily News in November.
