Federal worker sentenced in Ohio bootleg DVD case

Associated Press

COLUMBUS: A federal employee accused of selling pirated movie DVDs during work hours has pleaded guilty in Ohio to copyright infringement and been sentenced to two years of probation.

Federal authorities say 65-year-old Darrell Lee Lynch, of Columbus, pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and was sentenced Thursday in Columbus. Lynch was ordered to pay about $1,500 to the Motion Picture Association of America and had to resign from the Defense Logistics Agency.

Lynch’s attorney, Joe Landusky II, says Lynch acknowledged his wrongdoing, regrets it and believes the government treated him fairly.

Court documents say authorities began investigating after complaints that Lynch was selling DVDs to fellow employees during work hours. They found 188 unauthorized copies of recent movies in April with a list and descriptions of the movies for sale.
