Man to plead guilty to trafficing counterfeit goods
Published: October 18,2013
GULFPORT — Federal court records say a man charged with selling counterfeit purses, wallets and other items in Harrison County will plead guilty in the case.
Ousainou Mahanera was indicted Aug. 20, but the case was sealed until his arrest in New Orleans in September.
The indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Gulfport says Mahanera sold purses and other items that were fake versions of high-end brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
The indictment said the items also include shoes and belts. Authorities say Mahanera sold them in March.
His attorney filed a notice this week that Mahanera intends to plead guilty.
A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Monday.
