ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — A Ketchikan man who kicked a Coast Guardsman in the face has been convicted of assault on a federal officer.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Anchorage says 56-year-old Jon William Munhoven could face up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced June 23 in federal court in Juneau. He was found guilty Thursday by a jury.

Munhoven was arrested on Sept. 2 when a 25-foot Coast Guard boat from Ketchikan responded to a call for help from a vessel where a man said Munhoven had bloodied his nose. The Coast Guard crew placed Munhoven in handcuffs and he kicked a member of the crew during the struggle.
