(DAVENPORT) A Columbus Junction man was sentenced to probation for copyright infringement.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says 50 year old Arturo Eduardo Cantu was sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation and imposed a $3,000.
In July of 2012, Cantu was encountered by law enforcement with over 500 DVDs for sale in a parking lot in Muscatine. A subsequent search of Cantu’s residence revealed numerous computers, external hard drives, DVD burners, more than 8,000 blank DVDs, and approximately 1,000 illegally copied DVDs.
This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations, and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
