A 42-year-old Greenfield Maine was sentenced Wednesday to 15 months in prison and one year of supervised release for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

Tobin White pleaded guilty to an indictment on January 17, 2014.

On February 12, 2013, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the defendant’s home in Greenfield Township.  As officers approached, the defendant left the house holding a flashlight and a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol.

When the officers identified themselves and ordered the defendant to the ground, he complied.  Officers found the gun in a holster next to the defendant.  The defendant was prohibited from possessing the firearm because he had been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence (assault) in 2003.

The case was investigated by the Maine Warden Service. the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Maine State Police.
