(AP) BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - A worker at a gun shop where the Newtown, Conn., school shooter’s mother bought a rifle has been sentenced to probation for violating federal law in an unrelated sale.

Krystopher DiBella pleaded guilty in June to failing to have a 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, 60 miles northeast of Newtown. Nancy Lanza legally bought from Riverview a Bushmaster rifle used by her son, who in December killed her 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.
