The owner of Sarge’s Comics in New London, Conn., has pleaded guilty in federal court to selling pirated DVDs and CDs. He faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine when he’s sentenced in November.
The Day reports that Robert P. Miller admitted to federal agents in 2005 that he’d been using a DVD/CD burning to make copies of movies and television shows to sell to customers.
When agents raided the store in 2005, they reportedly recovered 778 DVDs and CDs containing pirated works. On Monday, Miller accepted a deal from the government, and pleaded guilty to one count of criminal copyright infringement.
