3 Sentenced For Trafficking Guns From Nevada To California

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Federal officials say three people have been sentenced in illegally buying firearms in Nevada and selling them in Northern California.

The U.S. Department of Justice says 27-year-old Richard Straight, of Oakland, 26-year-old Jenna Allec, of Oakland and 32-year-old Kenneth Lee Kemp, of Elko, Nevada, pleaded guilty in September in exchange for shorter sentences.

Prosecutors say Straight admitted he acted as the middleman in the sale of at least 39 firearms in Nevada. He was sentenced to 42 months in prison.
