Federal officials say three people have been sentenced for 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, California, 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 acting as the middleman in the sale of at least 39 firearms in Nevada. He was sentenced to 42 months in prison.

Kemp was sentenced to 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to buying about 21 firearms in the Reno area and selling them in Oakland.

Officials say Allec was sentenced to four years' probation after admitting to illegally selling 18 firearms purchased in Nevada.
