MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN — Kevin Leonard Houle, 42, of Gwinn, Michigan, was sentenced to 84 months in prison, U.S. Attorney Patrick A. Miles, Jr. announced today. U.S. District Judge R. Allan Edgar also ordered Houle to serve three years of supervised release following his prison term.
On August 4, 2015, Houle pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. The charge arose from an investigation surrounding the discharge of a firearm during a domestic dispute on March 20, 2015. Officers arrived on the scene, whereupon Houle led them in a high speed car chase through a residential area. Houle then abandoned his car and fled on foot. He was found hiding in a neighbor’s residence. He admitted that he had taken a rifle and shot several holes in the windshield of his vehicle after arguing with his wife. Houle had previously been convicted of felony drug and robbery charges in New Hampshire.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Forsyth Township Police Department and the Michigan State Police investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul D. Lochner prosecuted the case.
