Alhambra Woman Convicted Of Trafficking 30K Counterfeit DVDs

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Alhambra woman has been convicted of federal charges for trafficking more than 30,000 DVDS with counterfeit Dolby trademarks.

Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles say Dong Qun Lin was found guilty Friday of three counts of selling movies with the counterfeit trademarks. She also was convicted of conspiring with the owner of Tema Media, Inc., a Monterey Park retail store where Lin was employed.

Prosecutors say Tema Media sold counterfeit movies from China, some of which were compilation disks featuring the Chinese and American movies of actors such as Jet Li and Jackie Chan.

Tema Media owner Jackie Weisheng Chen previously pleaded guilty to trafficking in counterfeit goods and is scheduled to be sentenced later this year.

Lin faces up to 35 years in prison when she’s sentenced in April.
