ND couple sentenced on illegal firearms charges

BISMARCK — A North Dakota couple has been sentenced on illegal firearms charges.

Arthur Funk and Dorothy Oster, of Moffit, were each charged with possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon. Funk pleaded in January. Oster pleaded guilty in March.

Authorities conducted a search of the couple's home in September 2011 and found four firearms and various rounds of ammunition.

The 39-year-old Funk had prior felony convictions for arson, burglary and concealing stolen property. The 47-year-old Oster had a felony conviction for promoting obscenity to a minor.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Funk to one year and one day in prison. Oster was sentenced to two years in prison.
