The case of a man charged with illegally possessing a firearm is in the hands of a Juneau jury after attorneys delivered closing arguments Thursday in U.S. District Court.
Jayson Dennis is charged with possessing a firearm after being previously convicted of a felony. He was previously convicted in 1996 of second-degree assault, according to court records.
Closing arguments on both sides focused on the testimony of a government confidential informant. The informant testified previously that Dennis had possessed a gun in a hotel room. Public defender Sue Ellen Tatter focused her closing on impeaching the credibility of the informant.
The jury is expected to reconvene today.
