Massachusetts man gets 46 months on weapons charge

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

PORTLAND, Maine — A Massachusetts man will spend nearly four years behind bars on a weapons charge, the U.S. attorney’s office announced Wednesday.

Jamie Figueroa, 22, was handed a 46-month sentence Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland by Judge Brock Hornby.

Figueroa will be on three years of supervised release once he completes his prison term for a charge of possession of firearm by a felon. He pled guilty to the charge on Nov. 26.

Court documents indicate Figueroa, a convicted felon since 2012, was arrested on Sept. 2, after Windham police responded to a call regarding a residential disturbance.

Officers obtained a description of the vehicle, which had been reported stolen in New Hampshire, and found it stopped in another driveway in Windham. Figueroa was the driver.

Police found a loaded revolver in Figueroa’s pocket following his arrest.
