ImageMIAMI (AP) — A man with dual Romanian and U.S. citizenship has been sentenced in Miami to almost three years in prison for his role in a plot to sell prohibited aircraft parts to Iran.

Traian Bujduveanu (Tray-'ANN Booj-doo-'VAY-nu) was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Patricia Seitz. He pleaded guilty in April to a single to a single conspiracy count.

Also pleading guilty and sent to prison in the plot was Iranian-born Hassan Keshari.

Prosecutors say both men were illegally helping Iran obtain parts for such aircraft as the F-14 Tomcat fighter, C-130 cargo plane and AH-1 attack helicopter. The parts were shipped from South Florida to Dubai and on to Iran.
