Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Wayne
E. Boulier, Jr., 34, of Presque Isle, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Chief
Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to seven years in prison to be followed by three years of
supervised release for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Boulier pleaded guilty to the
charge on February 24, 2014.

Court records reveal that on the evening of April 6, 2013, the defendant went to a bar in
Presque Isle. A bouncer at the pub approached the defendant, told him that he needed to leave
and escorted him to the door. As the defendant fell onto the sidewalk outside, he pulled up his
shirt and pulled out a loaded pistol. A bar patron and a second bouncer restrained the defendant
and took the pistol from him. Boulier was prohibited from possessing firearms because he had
12 prior state felony convictions.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms &
Explosives, the Presque Isle Police Department and the Maine State Police.
