Harvey Lembo Will Not Be Charged For Shooting Home Invader

posted on July 7, 2017

A retired lobsterman from Rockland, Maine, will not be facing criminal charges, according to a statement made by District Attorney Jonathan Liberman and reported in the Portland Press Herald. Harvey Lembo, who is disabled, used a pistol he had purchased only hours earlier to wound home invader Christopher Wildhaber in 2015.

We covered extensively the legal fallout from the shooting. Lembo’s apartment complex banned firearms, leading eventually to a new state law safeguarding Second Amendment rights for residents of subsidized housing. Consequently, Lembo was able to stay in his apartment.

The previous district attorney had stated that he had not ruled out the possibility of charging Lembo for shooting the man who broke into his home. “Mr. Lembo never felt he did anything wrong defending himself,” said David Weyrens, Lembo’s attorney. “He is grateful that District Attorney Liberman came to the same conclusion.”
