ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A Colorado man is indicated by a federal grand jury in Alaska for perjury and making false statements.
The U.S. attorney’s office says in a release the indictment was returned against 61-year-old James Paul Hunt of Montrose.
Acting U.S. Attorney Kevin Feldis says Hunt had applied to be a third-party custodian for his son, who is charged with distributing child pornography.
Feldis says when Hunt signed his custodian application, he didn’t disclose a prior arrest, one of the questions on the form. Feldis says Hunt pleaded guilty in Colorado in 1987 to sexual assault on a child. Feldis also says Hunt didn’t disclose the charge or his guilty plea when questioned under oath.
Each felony count carries up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
