A former New Jersey museum director has been sentenced to three years in prison for buying a rotary machine gun used on a Navy F-14 fighter jet.
Wayne Miller was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court. He pleaded guilty to buying the machine gun at Oceana Naval Air Station in 2005 from a Navy chief petty officer charged with decommissioning aircraft. Miller was executive director of the Aviation Hall of Fame in Teterboro, N.J., at the time and was
planning to open a flight-simulator business.
Two others were convicted in the case, but prosecutors said Miller organized the conspiracy.
