Two West Virginia brothers have been sentenced for stealing rifle scopes and other military optics from the U.S. Marine Corps and selling it to overseas customers.
U.S. Attorney Charles Miller's office says 21-year-old Joseph Oldani received a 21-month prison term Monday, while 24-year-old Timothy Oldani received a five-month term.
The Scott Depot residents had pleaded guilty in February.
Joseph Oldani admitted that while on active duty with the Marines at Camp Lejeune, N.C., he stole rifle scopes, infrared target pointers and other gear and transported them to his brother, who is a former Marine.
Federal prosecutors say Timothy Oldani sold the items online to customers in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.
