Former Maine lawmaker indicted on gun charges
Former Maine lawmaker indicted on charges of criminal threatening with gun, reckless conduct
By The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) ' A former Maine legislator who was barred from the State House after being charged with pulling a loaded gun on a stranger in a parking lot has been indicted.

A Kennebec County Superior Court jury indicted Frederick Wintle on Friday on charges of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct and carrying a concealed weapon. Wintle resigned on Sept. 13.

His attorney has said Wintle's actions were the result of a mental breakdown. Leonard Sharon says Wintle remains in treatment.



Sharon says he wanted to resolve the case in a way that would allow Wintle to avoid a felony conviction; he said he negotiated with District Attorney Evert Fowle.

Fowle tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/qpc1W9) an earlier attempt had been made to resolve the matter, but it wasn't successful.
