LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A suspected neo-Nazi has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a gun charge in West Texas. Aiden Bruce-Umbaugh could have received up to 10 years in prison at his Tuesday sentencing in Lubbock, Texas. The charge resulted from a November traffic stop in Post, Texas.
