EL PASO, Calif. — A federal judge sentenced former FBI agent John Shipley on Tuesday to two years in prison after his conviction of gun dealing without a license.

Shipley, 40, also was convicted in April of providing federal agents with false documents to hide the number of guns he sold. Shipley's lawyer Leon Schydlower described his client as an honest family man, a law officer and a churchgoer. He was not a "dirty cop," rather an avid gun collector, he said.
