One Sentenced in Golf Counterfeiting Case
One of three defendants charged with selling counterfeited brands of golf equipment on eBay will serve time in prison as a result of a plea agreement.
Warren Fondrie pleaded guilty to a dozen counts of the criminal use of counterfeit trademarks in Moore County Superior Court Thursday.
Cases against his father, Donald Fondrie, and another defendant, Pei-i Chou, on similar charges, were held over until the May term of court.
Warren Fondrie will serve 10 consecutive sentences of eight to 10 months in prison. He will have to pay restitution of $253,338, which is based on estimated gross sales exceeding $150,000 and includes lost profits and other charges.
