(Michigan City, IN) - A man with a violent criminal history has admitted to illegal possession of a gun in Michigan City.  Alsiah Spikes, 30, pleaded guilty Thursday in La Porte Superior Court 1 to Level 4 felony unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.


According to court documents, Spikes was inside a home in the 500 block of Van Spanje Court when local and federal authorities showed up.  He allegedly fled out of a bedroom window but soon was captured following a foot chase.  Authorities noted the finding of a loaded gun inside the home which was illegal for him to possess due to a criminal history involving crimes like armed robbery in the Chicago area.  Police later stated the gun was also stolen.


Spikes could face anywhere from a two to 12-year sentence if the court accepts the plea agreement.
