A Juneau man has changed his plea for his involvement in a domestic violence case that turned into a marijuana bust.
Bob S. Huber, 32, entered a guilty plea to misdemeanor assault in Juneau Superior Court on Tuesday.
He was originally charged with felony assault and later indicted on more severe charge of felony assault with the intent to cause fear of injury with a weapon.
According to the amended charging documents read by Juneau Superior Court Judge Louis Menendez, Huber used his hands to assault a 43-year old woman identified only by her initials of M.C.
Trial in the case was scheduled to start this week.
Huber’s sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.
According to police, Huber tipped them off to the marijuana grow during his arrest last November on Windfall Avenue in the Mendenhall Valley. Officers said they found 55 plants as well as grow equipment and ten firearms after they asked the 60-year old female homeowner if they could enter a back bedroom.
This is not the first time that Huber has been through the Juneau court system.
He was also arrested on an assault charge in November 2011. Huber was ordered to pay a $50 fine and serve 10 days in jail after entering a guilty plea in that case.
Huber was 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.
