Judge Orders $300K Forfeiture in Counterfeit Case
SIOUX FALLS – Two people have been ordered to forfeit about $300,000 in bank accounts and other items in a trademark violation case.
Thirty-four-year-old Ravaye Meltzer and 29-year-old Bar Braver were convicted in federal court of trafficking in counterfeit goods and services.
Authorities say Meltzer and Braver intentionally sold counterfeit goods near Rapid City, Keystone, Deadwood, Hill City and Sturgis between February 2010 and August 2011.
U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken also ordered the two defendants to serve one year of probation.
