Settlement conference set for Krivak case

December 15, 2018

KINGMAN — A Fort Mohave woman charged with 17 criminal counts was back in court.

Roxanne Erica Krivak, 35, was in Superior Court with a new defense attorney, Scott Greene, now handling her three criminal cases.

Greene said a settlement conference is scheduled Dec. 20 before Superior Court Commissioner Billy Sipe Jr. A settlement conference is when a judge explains details of a possible plea offer and sentencing ranges if a defendant is tried and convicted of all the charges. She is being held in county jail on a $10,000 bond.

Superior Court Judge Richard Weiss postponed Tuesday’s hearing to Jan. 17, 2019. Weiss is retiring at the end of the month. Krivak’s case will then be heard before Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle, who will take over Weiss’ criminal cases.

Krivak is charged in a 2018 case with four counts of aggravated driving under the influence, aggravated assault, criminal damage, two counts of child abuse by domestic violence, two counts of endangerment, resisting arrest and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

Krivak’s charges stem from a traffic crash June 2 at Highway 95 and El Rodeo Road in Fort Mohave. One of the aggravated DUI counts involved a child in the car, according to court records.

Krivak is also charged in a Feb. 6, 2015, traffic crash where she allegedly drove her pickup while under the influence of alcohol into a fence in the 700 block of Hancock Road in Bullhead City. Her then 5-year-old son was in the car.

No one was hurt in the crash. Krivak is charged with four counts of aggravated DUI in that case. Her blood-alcohol content was tested at the police station at 0.30 percent. The legal limit in Arizona is 0.08 percent.

Krivak is also charged in a 2016 case with misconduct with a weapon for allegedly possessing a weapon while being a prohibited possessor. That charge allegedly occurred Aug. 8, 2016, on Oro Avenue also in Bullhead City.
