ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — 26-year-old Jasmine Turner was sentenced to 34 months in federal prison on Monday for selling firearms to someone whom she knew was a felon.

Turner pleaded guilty to the charge on June 12.

According to the plea agreement, Turner purchased a Glock .45 and a Diamondback 5.56 in May 2017 for her boyfriend, who had been convicted of second-degree murder.

She admitted purchasing the firearms at his request, and that she gave them to him after she bought them.

In addition, Turner admitted to making a false statement to a licensed firearms dealer in April 2017, when she stated that she was the actual buyer of a firearm when she was actually buying the gun for another friend of hers.

In addition to her sentence, Turner must also serve three years of mandatory probation.
