Counterfeiters Plead Guilty, Sentenced to Jail

In November 2011, the Associated Press reported that a Southern California businessman, Isaac Cheuk Hang Tse, and his office manager, Pao Sheng Yang, pled guilty to selling counterfeit EOTech products via the Internet. Tse is the owner of Anaheim-based Field Sports.

According to the AP report, the pair were initially charged with felonies. The 65-year-old Tse and 34-year-old Yang each pled guilty to misdemeanors: selling counterfeit goods and possessing an assault weapon.

City News Service said Tse was sentenced to 60 days in jail and 3 years’ probation, and Yang was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 3 years’ probation.

According to Orange County prosecutors, Field Sports manufactured and advertised about 700 counterfeit gun sights and 200 magnifier systems for sale online.
