A Gray man was sentenced on Wednesday to 15 months in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Matthew Feehan, 30, of Gray, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Portland by D. Brock Hornby.

According to court records, Feehan possessed a Sig Sauer 9 mm semi-automatic pistol in September and October 2015. Feehan had been prohibited from possessing the firearm because of a prior felony conviction for theft, acting U.S. Attorney Richard W. Murphy said in a statement.
