Man pleads no contest to shooting at neighbor's cabin

Posted: Sunday, June 02, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Homer man pleaded no contest to strafing his neighbor's cabin with buckshot and shotgun slugs.

John Powell pleaded no contest to third-degree assault and weapons misconduct. Charges of attempted murder were dropped. However, because of prior convictions Powell faces at least 10 years in prison.

Sentencing was set for Aug. 26 in Kenai.

Powell, 39, began firing at his neighbor's cabin one night in April 2001. He also fired at a passing snowmachiner. No one was injured, but the couple inside the cabin was forced to hide beneath a bed.

Powell told troopers he was angry because snowmachiners were driving across his property.
