JUNEAU -- An Oregon man has been convicted on two counts of falsely reporting where he caught fish in Alaska.
Sentencing for Freddie Joe Hankins was set for October. The U.S. attorney's office says he faces up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine or both.
Hankins was acquitted of two other counts of false reporting.
Hankins once operated a fishing vessel co-owned by Arne Fuglvog. Fuglvog, who pleaded guilty last year to falsely reporting where he caught sablefish, testified against Hankins.
Fuglvog was a fisheries aide to Sen. Lisa Murkowski who resigned shortly before a plea deal with prosecutors was made public in August. He was sentenced to five months in prison; it was known at the time of his sentencing that Fuglvog was helping prosecutors in another case.
