Ranferi Osorio, Kelvin Leon Morrison and Luis Carbajal were sentenced Tuesday for their November guilty pleas. U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay of Dallas sentenced Osorio to 10 years in prison, Morrison to 2 1/2 years in prison, and Carbajal to two years of probation.

According to federal complaints filed previously, investigators said the men met a confidential informant near Dallas in November and gave him 40 guns to take into Mexico.
