Overland park man sentenced in Nebraska for machine guns

LINCOLN, Neb. | A Kansas man has been sentenced in Nebraska to a year in prison for owning unregistered machine guns.

Richard Canfield of Overland Park was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln. The 32-year-old had faced up to 10 years in prison for possession of an unregistered machine gun.

The U.S. attorney's office says Canfield was a passenger in a car stopped for speeding near Kearney in November 2008. In the car were Canfield's two machine guns, which had been fired near Cozard earlier in the day.

Prosecutors say neither machine gun bore serial numbers, and neither was registered.
