LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A federal judge approved a three-year prison sentence last week for a Tenaha man who pleaded guilty to being a felon and illegally owning guns.

Records for Roderrette Dewrayne McClure, 39, actually have the prison time listed as 36 months plus one day. He will also have to serve three years of supervised release once he completes his prison time.

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

McClure was never charged in anything related to the office bugging.

His wife, Jeannie McClure, pleaded guilty to assisting her husband in getting the guns. She is serving probation in the case.
