Palmdale couple sentenced for selling knockoff sports apparel

A Palmdale husband and wife were sentenced to probation for selling counterfeit sports merchandise out of their store.

Terrance Stovall, 37, and Shawna Stovall, 40, received three years' probation Monday and were required to pay restitution for passing fake sports jerseys and caps as authentic items endorsed by professional teams.

Detectives were notified in June that the couple were selling knockoffs at the The Jersey Store. After a monthlong investigation, a warrant was issued to search the business and the couple's Palmdale home.

Deputies recovered 232 counterfeit jerseys and caps with an estimated value of $29,000. The items represented professional teams from baseball, football, hockey and basketball. 

The couple pleaded guilty to selling counterfeit trademarked merchandise. The Jersey Store closed its doors for business shortly after the search warrant.
