Judge sentences state prisoner for gun crime

By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine – A federal judge has sentenced a Smyrna man to more than five years in federal prison for possession of a gun after being convicted of a crime of domestic violence.

Horace W. Salley III, 36, is already serving 14-year sentence in state prison for assaulting and raping his wife.

U.S. District Judge John Woodcock on Monday ordered that Salley begin serving the 63-month federal sentence after he completes his time in state prison.

Salley was convicted in November 2007 by a federal jury of possessing a gun after being convicted of domestic assault on a former girlfriend. He was convicted last August in Aroostook County Superior Court of gross sexual assault, assault and tampering with a witness.

Salley is incarcerated at the Maine State Prison

in Warren, according to federal court documents.
