The father of a 5-year-old boy who fatally shot himself at an Anchorage home in December was ordered Wednesday to spend more than three years in prison on a federal weapons charge.
Chief U.S. District Judge Timothy Burgess handed down a 40-month sentence for 30-year-old Anthony L. Johnson in an Anchorage courtroom. Johnson’s son Christan killed himself on Dec. 5 with a handgun, which prosecutors said was kept in the same drawer as candy at the family’s Russian Jack residence.
Court records show that Johnson, who was convicted of possessing crack cocaine with intent to distribute in 2012, changed his plea in February on federal charges of being a felon in possession of a weapon following the December shooting.
