Charleston, SC (AP) -

A former Berkeley County sheriff's deputy has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for illegal gun sales.
    
Acting South Carolina United States Attorney Beth Drake says 62-year-old Tony Allen Riley of Goose Creek pleaded guilty and was sentenced in federal court in Charleston on Tuesday.
    
Riley was a deputy in December 2013. Drake says evidence at the hearing showed that he twice sold firearms to a person he knew to be under indictment for a crime punishable by a prison term of more than a year.
    
That's a violation of federal law.
    
Riley must also serve a year of probation following completion of the prison term.
