WICHITA FALLS (AP) - A 28-year-old North Texas man has been sentenced to almost six years in prison for software piracy.

A U.S. attorney’s statement says James Clayton Baxter of Wichita Falls was sentenced Tuesday to 57 months in federal prison and ordered to pay more than $400,000 in restitution after pleading guilty to copyright infringement.

Court documents show Baxter sold pirated Adobe Systems software from June 2006 through March 2007.

Wichita Falls police had independently investigated Baxter for software piracy in October 2007 and seized computers and external storage media.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Wichita Falls ordered Baxter to report to prison by March 29.
