We consider a continuous time random walk X in a random environment on a{''}currency sign(+) such that its potential can be approximated by the function V:a{''}e(+)-> a{''}e given by where sigma W a Brownian motion with diffusion coefficient sigma > 0 and parameters b, alpha are such that b > 0 and 0 <alpha < 1/2. We show that P-a.s. (where P is the averaged law) with . In fact, we prove that by showing that there is a trap located around (with corrections of smaller order) where the particle typically stays up to time t. This is in sharp contrast to what happens in the ``pure{''} Sinai's regime, where the location of this trap is random on the scale ln(2) t. (AU)
