Massachusetts Man Sentenced to Almost 4 Years on Federal Firearm Charge

Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Jamie Figueroa, 22, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge D. Brock Hornby to 46 months of imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release for possession of a firearm by a felon.  Figueroa pled guilty to the charge on November 26, 2013.

According to court records, on September 2, 2013, Figueroa, a convicted felon since 2012, was arrested by Windham, Maine police officers.  The police officers had responded to a call regarding a residential disturbance and had obtained a description of the vehicle used by the suspects.  Officers located the vehicle, which had been reported stolen in New Hampshire, stopped in the driveway of another residence in Windham.   At gunpoint, officers ordered Figueroa, who was the driver, out of the vehicle and removed a loaded revolver from his coat pocket.  

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Windham, Maine Police Department.
