Wesam Abedrabbo of Clifton also was ordered Monday to forfeit $387,516, which represents the gross proceeds of his sales. The 29-year-old will also have to serve a year of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

Abedrabbo had pleaded guilty to a complaint charging him with trafficking in counterfeit goods.

Abedrabbo admitted that from March 2010 through May 2012, he imported counterfeit merchandise from numerous locations in Asia and sold the items online. He also paid other individuals a commission to sell the counterfeit merchandise for him online.

In connection with his illicit efforts, authorities say Abedrabbo sold more than $350,000 worth of counterfeit goods.
