Fairfield Man Sentenced for Illegally Having Guns and Ammo

FAIRFIELD, Maine (WABI) - A man from Fairfield was sentenced to about six months in jail for illegally possessing guns and ammunition, time he's already served.

54-year-old Steven Lemieux appeared in federal court in Bangor Wednesday after he was convicted in June.

He was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

Lemieux was taken into federal custody in May.

Court documents say last December, he was found with seven guns and more than 700 rounds of ammo.

He was prohibited from having them after a 2006 conviction for lying to get a federal firearms license.
