Anchorage man gets 57 months for firearms crime

Posted: Monday, February 09, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A 22-year-old Anchorage man received a 57-month sentence in federal court for his conviction of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Antoni Damian Peralta was also ordered to forfeit a 9mm semiautomatic handgun and ammunition.

Three years ago, Peralta was sentenced for felony crimes of second degree robbery, first degree vehicle theft and first degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer.

In May 2008, police working a gang suppression assignment stopped a vehicle with four passengers, including Peralta.

Upon searching him, police found a handgun with an empty chamber, but the magazine contained seven rounds.
