Plea agreement explained to Fort Mohave woman

December 24, 2018

KINGMAN — A Fort Mohave woman could face more than 50 years in prison if she is convicted of her 12 criminal charges.

Roxanne Erica Krivak, 35, is charged with four counts of aggravated driving under the influence, aggravated assault, criminal damage, two counts of child abuse, two counts of endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

She is being held in the Mohave County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

In a settlement conference held Thursday, Superior Court Commissioner Billy Sipe Jr. explained Krivak’s prison range if she is convicted of all the charges. She would face almost 26 years to more than 50 years in prison. Six of the charges would run consecutively to each other.

The judge also explained a plea agreement allowing her to plead guilty to aggravated DUI, aggravated assault and child abuse. She would be sentenced to prison from five years to 16 years.

Deputy Mohave County Attorney David Wayt said enhancements to her sentence would include two prior convictions and that she committed the new charges while on probation in two previous cases.

Krivak’s case will be reassigned to Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle, who will take over Superior Court Judge Richard Weiss’ criminal cases starting in January. Her next hearing is set for Jan. 17.

Krivak’s new charges stem from a traffic crash June 2 at Highway 95 and El Rodeo Road in Fort Mohave. One of the aggravated DUI counts involves a child in the car. No one was seriously hurt in the crash.

Krivak is on probation for a 2015 crash where she drove her truck 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. She was convicted of aggravated DUI in that case. Krivak’s blood-alcohol content was tested at the police station at more than 0.30 percent. The legal limit in Arizona is 0.08 percent.

Krivak also is on probation for a 2016 case after pleading guilty to attempted misconduct with a weapon for possessing a weapon while being a prohibited possessor. That incident occurred Aug. 8, 2016, on Oro Avenue in Bullhead City.
