Sentencing has been rescheduled for January 18 in the case of a former Juneau police officer charged with interfering with a witness.
Brian Ervin, 39, had initially been charged with three felony charges of sexual abuse of a minor. But those charges were dropped in August as Ervin pled “no contest” to the felony interference charge.
Ervin’s prison term of two years may be well above the presumptive minimum of a year because the crime occurred while he was out on release.
Juneau Police Department officials say they removed Ervin from normal police duties when the allegations initially surfaced. He had been reassigned to another position within the City and Borough of Juneau.
