MARQUETTE - A Sault Ste. Marie man who last year illegally possessed and transported more than 4,000 pounds of explosives was sentenced Thursday to more than four years in federal prison.

John Francis Lechner, 65, was convicted by a jury in June of two counts of transporting explosive materials without a permit, two counts of improperly storing explosive materials, one count of possessing explosives while under indictment and one count of making materially false statements to law enforcement.

At Thursday's sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in Marquette, Judge R. Allan Edgar sentenced Lechner to 51 months in prison and ordered him to pay $6,450 in fines.
