A convicted felon who was found to have a gun at a Ketchikan camp site last summer has been indicted by a federal grand jury.
The U.S. attorney's office says in a release that the grand jury has indicted James A. Mavromatis on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Officials say Mavromatis had a semi-automatic firearm with him when he was contacted by the U.S. Forest Service at the camp site on July 1.
If convicted, the maximum sentence he would face would be up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
