JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A 55-year-old Ketchikan man convicted of assaulting a Coast Guard officer has been sentenced to four years in federal prison and three years of supervised release.

Jon William Munhoven, who also spells his name Mundhoven, was sentenced Wednesday in Juneau.

The Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/1sasFDP) reports Munhoven was a guest on a boat in September 2013 and got into a fight with the skipper, who called the Coast Guard.

Munhoven in March was convicted of kicking a responding Coast Guard officer in the face, chipping his tooth and bloodying his nose.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt sought a 10-year sentence and called Munhoven one of the most violent men he had ever seen in court.

Schmidt cited Munhoven’s past convictions over four decades for assaults, armed robberies, rape and kidnapping.
