Connecticut Comic Shop Owner Pleads Guilty to Selling Pirated CDs, DVDs

Local media reports indicate that Robert Miller, the owner of Sarge's Comic Store in New London, Connecticut, has pleaded guilty in federal court to selling pirated CDs and DVDs. Miller will be sentenced in November, and may end up serving a year in prison and facing stiff fines. Apparently, Miller was caught by an undercover agent, sales to whom led to a search warrant and discovery of such material. Court documents available by following the link. Accusations of pirated CD and DVD sales are part of the comics landscape, although it's something that usually surfaces at conventions when people believe the show has on their floor a retailer or two devoted to material of that type.
