Sentencing for Former Gun Shop Worker

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A worker at the gun shop where the Newtown school shooter’s mother legally bought a rifle has been sentenced to probation for violating federal law in an unrelated sale.
Twenty-five-year-old Krystopher DiBella pleaded guilty in June to failing to have a different buyer answer a citizenship question on a form. He was sentenced Monday in Bridgeport federal court to three years’ probation and fined $250.

DiBella worked at Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor. The Associated Press has reported Nancy Lanza bought from Riverview a Bushmaster rifle used in the

December 2012 shooting by her son. Adam Lanza killed his mother at home and then killed 26 people and himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Riverview lost its federal firearms license after the shooting because of what authorities said were hundreds of violations over several years.
