RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A federal judge in South Dakota has sentenced a California man to two years in prison for having an unregistered firearm.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 26-year-old Gregorio Aguirre has also been ordered to serve three years of supervised release. Aguirre earlier pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm.

Authorities say the charge stems from Aguirre knowingly having an unregistered, saw-off Remington .22 caliber rifle when he has pulled over by the South Dakota Highway Patrol in April.

Aguirre is under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
