CONCORD - A former Dover man was sentenced Tuesday for illegally possessing four firearms and ammunition.

Christopher T. Brown, 39, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Steven J. McAuliffe to 57 months in prison and three years of supervised release. On Feb. 7 Brown pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

On January 9, 2023, the defendant's wife called emergency services and reported that she and the defendant had an argument, and that the defendant had a gun to his head. Dover police officers responded to the emergency call at the defendant's home. The defendant's wife consented to a search of the house, and officers found four firearms in the closet of their son's bedroom. Those guns included two pistols, a .40 caliber rifle, and a 12-gauge sawed-off shotgun with an obliterated serial number. Officers also recovered ammunition.

The defendant later admitted to owning the firearms and knowing that he could not lawfully possess them as a felon.
