ATLANTA - A white supremacist convicted on federal gun charges was sentenced today in Atlanta to almost six years in prison.

Chester James Doles, 43, Dahlonega was arrested in March 2003 when federal agents raided his home and found a dozen guns. An informant had been recording conversations with Doles since July 2001.

Federal agents say Doles served as state leader for the National Alliance.

The U-S attorney's office says Doles had been holding monthly meetings of extremists on his property before his arrest.

U-S District Judge Richard Story sentenced Doles to five years and ten months in federal prison. Doles will also be supervised for three years after his release.
