NYPD cop William Masso leaves Manhattan Federal Court on Friday
Masso was paid $6,000, and the other cops even less, to transport three M-16s, a rifle and 16 handguns to New York. The FBI made the guns inoperable.
Koeltl said Masso's crimes were "indisputably serious, with not a hint of justification and he offers no excuses for his actions."
Masso faced up to six years in prison after pleading guilty in February to four conspiracy counts.
Koeltl gave Masso credit for his 19 years as a cop and ordered him to begin his sentence Oct. 14.
Ten of Masso’s co-defendants have pleaded guilty and one of them, a former New Jersey Corrections Officer, has been sentenced to prison for 27 months. The other sentencings are pending.
