A Juneau man is headed to trial next February on a charge related to allegedly hitting a female companion earlier this month.
Bob Huber, 31, was arraigned in Juneau Superior Court on Tuesday.
A plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf.
A grand jury on Friday indicted Huber on a felony charge of assault in connection to the November 5th incident at the 4300 block of Windfall Avenue.
Bail for Huber remains set at $20,000 cash.
Superior Court Judge Louis Menendez, assigned to the case, notified attorneys that he had brief contact with the defendant when Huber worked as a clerk in a downtown movie rental store. But the judge did not immediately recuse himself from the case.
When police responded to the original call, Huber allegedly told them about 55 marijuana plants growing in a back bedroom. Ten firearms were also found by officers.
Police still have not filed charges related to the marijuana grow. They say the investigation is continuing in that part of the case.
Huber was previously convicted of arson in connection with the destruction of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, McPhetres Hall, and an adjacent home in March 2006. The following year he was sentenced to fifteen years in prison with seven years suspended, or eight years to serve.
