Travis Felder Sentenced to 64 Years for 2014 Crimes
September 25, 2017
(Anchorage, AK) Today, 43 year old Travis Felder of Anchorage was sentenced to spend 64 years in prison for a series of crimes he committed in 2014. In March 2017, an Anchorage jury convicted Felder of nine offenses, including sexual assault in the first degree and assault in the first degree. The jury’s verdict came after 17 days of trial.
The testimony at trial showed that in June 2014 Felder sexually and physically assaulted his ex-girlfriend, then entered an Anchorage home and assaulted the couple who lived there causing serious physical injury to the female resident. He was later arrested by the Anchorage Police Department.
Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton found that the State proved four separate aggravating factors based on Felder’s prior criminal history. Judge Wolverton rejected the mitigating factors proposed by Felder. Judge Wolverton sentenced Felder to serve 47 years for the sexual and physical assault on his ex-girlfriend. He sentenced Felder to serve an additional 17 years for the offender at the Anchorage home. Felder has an additional 27 years of suspended prison time that could be imposed when he is released on probation. Felder will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
Felder has been in the custody of the Department of Corrections since his arrest in 2014.
