LOUISBURG — A federal judge recently sentenced a Louisburg woman to three years in prison for selling guns.

Lindsey Nicole Underhill, 28, pawned three guns to Arrow Pawn and Jewelry in Raleigh on May 30, 2018, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina, which prosecuted the case in U.S. District Court.

Underhill is a convicted felon and is barred from carrying guns. The guns that she sold were a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun, a Hi-Point 9mm handgun and a North American Arms 22-caliber revolver, according to a press release.

She was charged last October with possession of firearms by a felon and pleaded guilty to that charged on Jan. 7. U.S. District Judge James C. Denver III sentenced Underhill to three years of imprisonment and an additional three years of supervised release afterward. The release, dated Tuesday, did not give the date of the sentencing.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel W. Smith. The release did not say what prior convictions Underhill had.
