Washington County Man Sentenced on Federal Firearm Charge

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine

BANGOR, Maine— A Machiasport man was sentenced in federal court on Tuesday for possession of a firearm by a felon, Acting U.S. Attorney Donald E. Clark announced.

U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Timothy D. Davis, 64, to 37 months in prison, to run consecutive to a 2-year sentence for violating the terms of his federal probation in another case.  Davis was also sentenced to three years of supervised release. Davis pleaded guilty in October 2019.

According to court records, Davis possessed a shotgun on July 9, 2019. He had previously been convicted of possession of a firearm by a felon in 2019 and armed assault with intent to murder in 2010. Davis was prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law because both crimes were punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case.

This case was part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
