BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Waterville, Maine, man is pleading guilty to federal charges of possessing ammunition as a felon.

Court records say 35-year-old Brian Mulkern pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court in Bangor. Court records say police apprehended him in August 2014 while he was in possession of 10 rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition.

The law prohibits Mulkern from possessing ammunition because of a past felony conviction in Maine for burglary, robbery and drug distribution. Prosecutors say Mulkern could face 15 years to life in prison and a $250,000 fine. Penalties will be stiffer if he is found to be an “armed career criminal” because of his felony convictions.
