Bangor, ME - Trenton Man Pleads Guilty to Possessing a Short-Barreled Shotgun

Brian Jordan, 33, of Trenton, Maine, pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court to possessing an unregistered firearm.

According to court records, on more than one occasion between January 2017 and May 2018, Jordan held and shot a short-barreled shotgun with a barrel length of less than 10 inches. Federal law prohibits the possession of a weapon made from a shotgun, if the modified weapon has a barrel less than 18 inches in length or an overall length of less than 26 inches, unless that weapon is registered to the possessor in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. The shotgun Jordan possessed was not registered to him.

Jordan faces up to 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. He will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The case was investigated by the United States Coast Guard Investigative Service; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Maine Marine Patrol.
