Union Man Pleads Guilty to Illegally Possessing a Firearm

United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Michael Brewer, 61, of Union, Maine pled guilty today in U.S. District Court to being a felon in possession of a firearm.


According to court records, on May 13, 2017, Brewer led the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office on a high speed chase after they attempted to execute a traffic stop of the truck Brewer was driving.  The chase ended when Brewer crashed and rolled his truck.  When removing Brewer from the truck, officers located a .22 caliber pistol resting beside Brewer.  Brewer was prohibited from possessing firearms based on prior felony convictions for Criminal Operating Under the Influence (2006), Burglary (2015) and Attempted Murder (1989).

Brewer faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  He will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The case was investigated by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, the Boothbay Harbor Police Department and the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
