A Winter Harbor man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal gun charge.
Timothy Daniel Davis, 61, of Winter Harbor pleaded guilty in federal court in Bangor to being a convicted felon in possession of a gun. He was convicted in 2010 in Massachusetts of armed assault with intent to murder, according to federal court records.
Davis in 2008 fired a rifle from a boat on a pond at a group of people on shore in Plymouth, Massachusetts, according to Wicked Local Plymouth. Davis told Massachusetts police at the time that the group had beaten him up a week earlier and was harassing him again and that “he was not going to take another beating,” according to the report.
The most recent charge stems from a 2016 Winter Harbor incident, in which a neighbor told police that Davis had threatened another man while “brandishing” a shotgun. Davis later admitted to authorities that he had a 12-gauge, double-barreled shotgun in a storage compartment in his coffee table in his apartment, according to documents.
Davis faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the gun possession conviction. He was released Tuesday on $10,000 unsecured bond and has agreed to waive his right to appeal his sentence if it is 33 months or less.
A sentencing date for Davis has not yet been set.
