CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man who admitted trafficking firearms in New Jersey has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say Darnel Johns received a 90-month sentence Wednesday. The 49-year-old Albrightsville man will also have to serve three years of supervised rel;ease once he’s freed from prison.

Johns had pleaded guilty in May to charges of conspiracy to deal in firearms without a federal firearms license and possession of firearms by a convicted felon. He admitted conspiring with a co-defendant in 2014 in the Camden area to illegally sell at least 22 firearms, including a sawed-off shotgun and high-capacity assault weapons.

Prosecutors say several of the firearms were stolen and had obliterated serial numbers.
