WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita woman is expected in federal court to be sentenced for selling fake luxury goods.
Glenda Sue Morgan pleaded guilty in October to one count of trafficking in goods bearing counterfeit designer labels such as Prada and Chanel at her shop, called The Fabulous Store.
Morgan faces a fine of up to $2 million and up to 10 years imprisonment. But at her sentencing Monday she is likely to receive far less prison time -- if any.
Prosecutors agreed in the plea deal to recommend a sentence at the low end of the federal guideline range, including a low-end fine.
Investigators seized 400 replica items with a retail value of $14,000 from Morgan's shop. Those goods would have been worth $140,000 had they been genuine.
