CASE LAW IN THE NEWS UPDATE Criminal Law

Sentencing, enhancement and counterfeit goods

Where a defendant challenged his 41 month sentence for trafficking in counterfeit goods, the trial court did not err in including the full amount of the value of the goods seized in the relevant sale and in applying a 12 level enhancement because he was in charge of the event, and denial of a two level reduction for the acceptance of responsibility was proper because he defendant did not voluntarily stop his involvement in criminal conduct.  Judgment affirmed.
