Five years ago this month, a gunman tried to rob a bar owner in Bangor, and attempted to shoot the man with a gun that wouldn't fire.
Adam Yeoman eventually pled 'no contest' to attempted murder, but appealed his conviction, claiming certain evidence should not have been used to obtain his plea. A state appeals court upholds the evidence, and the conviction.

Yeoman is 26 now, and has more than 20 years left on his prison sentence.
