LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Tenaha woman will serve two years of probation in connection to a federal firearms violation in relation to her husband.

Jeannie McClure pleaded guilty to the charge in February. She assisted her husband, Roderrette McClure, in owning guns. Because her husband is a convicted felon, it is illegal for him to own firearms.

Judge Ron Clark approved the sentence on Wednesday.

Roderrette McClure was suspected of burglarizing and bugging the Tenaha city marshall's office. When federal agents served a search warrant on his residence, they reportedly found the weapons in a gun cabinet.
