Man who sold rifle to Newtown mom pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT, CT (AP) -

A Connecticut man who sold a rifle to the mother of the Newtown school shooter has pleaded guilty to failing to have a purchaser answer a question on a form related to citizenship.

The transaction that led to the guilty plea involved a different customer.

The U.S. attorney's office says Krystopher DiBella pleaded guilty Monday in Bridgeport to aiding and abetting the failure to make a proper entry on the form. Prosecutors and DiBella's lawyers have agreed to recommend three years of probation for the 25-year-old West Suffield resident.

DiBella worked at Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor. The Associated Press has reported Nancy Lanza bought from Riverview a Bushmaster rifle used in the December shooting by her son. Adam Lanza killed his mother at their home and then 26 people and himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
