U.S. District Judge Lansing Mitchell handed down the heaviest penalty, a 2 1/2-year prison term, to Tommy Lynn Denley of Grenada, Miss., the organizer of the scheme. He and two others pleaded guilty to violating the federal Neutrality Act and another pleaded no contest. The others pleaded guilty to misdemeanor weapons charges.
