Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Tobin White, 42, of Greenfield Township, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 15 months in prison and one year of supervised release for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.  White pleaded guilty to an indictment on January 17, 2014.

On February 12, 2013, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the defendant’s home in Greenfield Township.  As officers approached, the defendant left the house holding a flashlight and a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol.  When the officers identified themselves and ordered the defendant to the ground, he complied.  Officers found the gun in a holster next to the defendant.  The defendant was prohibited from possessing the firearm because he had been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence (assault) in 2003. 

The case was investigated by the Maine Warden Service. the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Maine State Police.
