The man convicted of burning down the historic 110 year old Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, McPhetres Hall, and an adjacent home is back in jail.
Twenty-nine year old Bob Huber was arrested early Friday morning after an alleged altercation with a woman. He’s been charged with assault in the fourth degree and is now being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
Huber told District Court Judge Thomas Nave during an arraignment hearing on Friday afternoon that he did not have any savings. He’s only been working at a local motel for the last three months. That’s roughly the same amount of time that Huber has been out on parole after serving his sentence down south for arson.
Huber was sentenced to 15 years in prison with seven years suspended. Probation was set at ten years for the March 12th, 2006 fire that burned down all three structures in downtown Juneau. No one besides Huber was reported injured from the blaze. A cat in the private home reportedly died in the fire.
It was just this year that church and community members celebrated reconstruction of the new Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and McPhetres Hall.
