TAMA COUNTY (KWWL) --  A Tama County man facing three gun charges in a federal Indictment is being held in jail without bond after a hearing Monday afternoon in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids. Jason Harriman, of rural Traer, was ordered to be detained pending his January 3, 2011, trial.

Count 1 of the Indictment alleges that, on or about September 28, 2009, Harriman possessed a .22 caliber rifle after he had been convicted of two felonies – Burglary in the 2nd Degree and Kidnaping in the 3rd Degree – in Fayette County, Iowa, in January 1997.  Count 2 of the Indictment alleges that, on or about October 25, 2009, Harriman possessed a Glock .40 caliber pistol after he had been convicted of those two felonies in Fayette County.  Count 3 alleges that, on or about October 25, 2009, Harriman received the Glock .40 caliber pistol when he was under indictment in Tama County, Iowa, for felony crimes of Attempted Murder, Burglary 1st Degree, and Willful Injury. 

If convicted on all three charges, Harriman faces a possible maximum sentence of 25 years' imprisonment, a $750,000 fine, $300 in special assessments, and 9 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.

Harriman was found not guilty last week of assaulting his ex-wife and using a knife to cut her throat.

Harriman represented himself at his trial in Tama County, which lasted five days.
