Anchorage Felon sentenced to 41 months prison for illegal gun possession

Anchorage, Alaska- U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that an Anchorage man was sentenced in federal court in Anchorage for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Kenneth Joel Ball, 27, of Anchorage, Alaska, was sentenced today by U.S. States District Court Judge Sharon L. Gleason, to 41 months in prison, followed by a three year term of supervised release. The Court did not order Mr. Ball to pay a fine.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie C. Courter, who prosecuted the case, Mr. Ball was found in possession of a Kel-Tec, Model P-11, 9mm pistol on May 31, 2012, in Anchorage.  Mr. Ball’s possession of a firearm was prohibited due to his prior felony convictions, including state theft and narcotics charges.

            Ms. Loeffler commended the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Anchorage Police Department for their investigation of this case.
