CBP Officer Sentenced to Probation in Gun-Buying Scheme
A CBP officer who bought guns at local sporting goods stores for other people and then lied about it was sentenced Monday to fives years on probation, the Associated Press reports.
Manuel Eduardo Pena had faced up to five years in prison after prosecutors say he bought hunting rifles for other people and lied to authorities when asked about it, the AP reported.
A federal jury convicted Pena in August of two counts of making a false statement on a firearms record and one count of making a false statement to a federal authority.
The AP wrote that Pena is on unpaid leave.
