Ala. man sentenced for copyright violation

 LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - An Alabama man faces two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to copyright infringement in November. In a news release, prosecutors say 54-year-old Augustus Powell, of Huntsville, Ala. was stopped by police in Louisiana three times in one year and found in possession of thousands of bootlegged movies and music.

U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik in Lafayette, La., ordered Powell to undergo three years of supervised release last week and pay $7,000 in restitution to the Motion Picture Association of America.
