A Swanville man pled guilty Tuesday to illegally possessing guns after a prior conviction for domestic violence.

John T. Hines, 50, entered the plea in U.S. District Court in Bangor.

According to U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II, Hines had a .357 Ruger revolver, two rifles and a shotgun, but was prohibited from possessing guns because of a prior conviction for domestic violence assault.

Hines faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.
