ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - An Orlando bass tournament pro, who authorities say was involved in international firearms trafficking, was sentenced to just over two years in prison in Orlando federal court.
Hugh Crumpler III pleaded guilty in June to charges of unlicensed firearms dealing and possession of unregistered firearms. He faced up to 15 years in prison.
Authorities say guns linked to Crumpler were tied to crimes in other countries and that he mostly bought guns that are preferred weapons of drug cartels in South and Central America.
On Monday, Crumpler was also sentenced to two years of supervised release after his prison time and 100 hours of community service. Crumpler will turn himself in to the Bureau of Prisons.
Crumpler's attorney didn't immediately return a telephone message.
