DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A record store owner from Dallas was sentenced to serve 42 months in prison for copying and selling DVD movies at his shop. The sentence was handed down on Wednesday and announced on Friday morning.

Victor Karl Shelby of Dallas pled guilty in July 2012 to one count of willful infringement of a copyright. The 46-year-old was the owner and operator of In Tha Game Records, a retail store located along East Illinois Avenue in Dallas. According to court documents, Shelby had been reproducing and selling copyrighted DVD movies from sometime before September 2008 through November 2009.

The court said that Shelby used equipment to digitally reproduce the DVD movies. He would then sell the discs for about $3.00 each. As a part of his plea, Shelby turned over all of the merchandise used in the crime including two 11-slot DVD burner towers, 21 DVD burner drives and roughly 2,400 copyrighted DVD movies.

The judge ordered Shelby to begin serving his sentence by March 12.
