JUNEAU, Alaska — A 57-year-old Ketchikan man with a history of violence will spend four years in a federal prison for attacking a member of the Coast Guard.

Jon William Munhoven was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Juneau. He also must serve three years of probation.

Munhoven was arrested on Sept. 2, 2013, 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 in the face during the struggle.

Judge Timothy Burgess noted Munhoven's extensive violent criminal history as factors for the four-year sentence.
