LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles neighborhood newspaper publisher who asked people to donate guns for Haiti earthquake relief has been sentenced for illegally possessing the weapons.

The Los Angeles Daily News (https://bit.ly/2rZl90C ) says 75-year-old David DeMulle was sentenced Monday to 41 months in prison.

DeMulle owned The Foothills Paper, which covers news in LA’s Sunland-Tujunga area.

Authorities say he’s also a gun enthusiast and a convicted felon who cannot legally have firearms.

Police say in 2010, DeMulle printed an ad in his paper seeking guns that supposedly would be sold to raise money for earthquake relief in Haiti.

Police who searched DeMulle’s home said they found two dozen rifles and other firearms and about a half-ton of ammunition.

DeMulle was indicted in 2015.
