The 64-year-old woman arrested last November after law enforcement agents raided her Johnson Drive store on suspicion of selling counterfeit goods will face a year of probation.
Johnson County District Judge Charles Droege sentenced So Wun Pak to a 12-month probation contract for her felony conviction in the counterfeiting case. Should Pak violate the terms of her probation, she will face five months in prison.
Agents from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department raided Pak’s store at 5612 Johnson Drive on November 17, 2017, and collected merchandise as evidence. The raid followed an investigation in which law enforcement officers conducted undercover buys of merchandise that was presented as authentic Coach purses, Ray Ban and Oakley sunglasses, and Louis Vuitton accessories, among other items. Officials collected more than 3,300 counterfeit items from Pak’s operation. All of the counterfeit goods will be destroyed.
Assistant District Attorneys Alex Scott and Julia Ronnebaum prosecuted the case.
A pair of brothers from Hutchinson announced this summer that they plan to take over the former Sue’s Accessories space and turn it in to a new nanobrewery and taproom called Sandhills Brewing.
