A Juneau grand jury indicted an Anchorage man Friday for possessing a weapon despite his felony background.
Cory F. Anderson, 26, allegedly had a firearm with him on March 30 in the Juneau area, according to the indictment. Online court records show Anderson previously pleaded guilty to felony assault and vehicle theft in August 2013 and December 2010, respectively. Both of those were Anchorage cases.
Possessing a weapon while having a felony conviction is a class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine of $50,0000. Juneau Superior Court Judge Louis Menendez approved a $2,500 cash warrant for Anderson’s arrest following the indictment.
Anderson has also previously pleaded guilty to various misdemeanors since 2010 involving theft, assault and disorderly conduct, mostly in Anchorage. While in Juneau, Anderson has pleaded guilty to fourth-degree reckless assault and criminal mischief, in January and April, respectively.
