ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to a year and nine months in prison for selling a stolen gun that was later used to shoot a New York police officer.

U.S. Attorney William Hochul (HOH-kuhl) says 27-year-old Danelle Wilson of Tioga, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Wednesday for possession and sale of a stolen firearm.

Prosecutors say a co-defendant stole the .38-caliber revolver from her mother in 2012 and that she and Wilson then brought it from Pennsylvania to New York, where they sold it in Elmira to buy drugs.

Six months later, the gun was used to injure an Ithaca police officer.

Wilson’s co-defendant, Ciera Bennett, was sentenced earlier to 16 months in prison.
