LINCOLN, Nebraska — The former owners of a southeast Nebraska gun shop are going to prison for sales and income tax evasion.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) that Robert Androyna and Hope Androyna were sentenced Thursday in Lancaster County District Court. Robert Androyna was given two consecutive 18- to 36-month prison terms. His ex-wife was given two one-year terms to be served at the same time.

The two pleaded no contest in October to failing to pay sales and income tax.

State officials say their gun business took in $3.78 million from 2009 through 2012, but they did not report any income or send in nearly $200,000 collected in local and state sales taxes.

Officials had said the Androynas owed more than $479,000, but agreed to pay $187,000 in restitution.
