Jail Time For Counterfeit Sneaker Trafficker

A judge in Newark today sentenced Aref Abuhadba of Totowa to a year and a day in prison for taking part in an international conspiracy to sell counterfeit sneakers and bedding smuggled from China into the United States.

According to court documents, Abuhadba and others conspired to import counterfeit Nike sneakers and counterfeit Walt Disney-brand comforters and blankets from China for resale in the United States.

According to U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, Abuhadba was also responsible for collecting money from customers and wiring the proceeds of the scheme to the conspirators.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Cavanaugh sentenced Abuhadba to serve two years of supervised release. During his guilty plea proceeding, Abuhadba presented the government with a check for $200,000, representing his ill-gotten gains from his involvement in the conspiracy. He was also ordered to pay an additional $25,000 fine.
