Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Perrin
Oliver, 44, of Bangor and formerly of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced today in U.S.
District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to five years in prison and three years of supervised
release for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Oliver pleaded guilty to the charge on
December 19, 2013.

According to court records and proceedings, on July 4, 2013, Oliver, a previously
convicted felon, was arrested by the police after a stand-off at his Bangor apartment. During the

his arrest, officers found a Rossi .38 Special revolver in Oliver’s waistband. A safe located in
Oliver’s apartment contained a SIG Sauer .380 semi-automatic pistol and crack cocaine
belonging to Oliver.

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