PHILADELPHIA, Penn (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth man was sentenced today in connection with selling thousands of dollars in counterfeit guitars to pawn shops in the greater Philadelphia area.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in Philadelphia says 27-year-old Randy Gray pleaded guilty to selling counterfeit guitars identical to those sold by companies including C.F. Martin, Guild and Gibson.

Gray and his three co-defendants, 41-year old Bruce Alford and 44-year old Romeo Rondeau of Fort Worth and 39-year old Josh Davis of Galveston, admitted to selling more than 160 of the guitars to unsuspecting pawn shop – which paid a total of approximately $56,000 for the items.

Gray got one day in jail with three years of supervised release and must pay $7,600 in restitution.

Alford, Rondeau and Davis were sentenced previously in the case.
