PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A former U.S. Army officer who operated a Portland business selling military-grade weapons parts and accessories has pleaded guilty to arms export violations and to mishandling classified documents.

Justin Gage Jangraw pleaded guilty Friday to violating the Arms Export Control Act by selling parts overseas without a license via the website "Sexyweapon.com."

Prosecutors say he sold and exported 287 restricted items to 34 different foreign countries during a two-year period - including riflescopes, grips and levers, generating more than $12,000.

The 34-year-old Jangraw also pleaded guilty to removing and keeping Army emails with classified documents he received while deployed in Iraq.

Jangraw, who now lives in Rockford, Mich., entered the guilty plea in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. He will be sentenced on Nov. 21.
