Maine Fisherman Heading Back To Prison

Bangor Daily News: A Bass Harbor fisherman with a history of criminal convictions is being sent back to federal prison for violating his federal probation again.

Shaun G. Lemoine, who last November was found guilty of a state civil charge of molesting another lobsterman’s fishing gear, on Monday was ordered back to federal prison for seven months, according to federal court documents. He also was ordered to serve another two years of federal probation upon his release.

Lemoine, 32, grew up on Swan’s Island but the past couple of years has been living in the Tremont village of Bass Harbor on Mount Desert Island.

Lemoine has been on federal probation as a result of a 2006 conviction in federal court for trying to obtain firearms while under indictment. He spent a year in federal prison in Fort Dix, N.J., on the original federal firearms violation.

Attempts on Wednesday to contact Lemoine were unsuccessful.

According to federal court documents filed on Dec. 20, 2011, Lemoine molested lobster traps by stealing them from a Swan’s Island fisherman on Sept. 26, 2011, and subsequently admitted to a Maine Marine Patrol officer that he had done so.
