Federal sentence for fake purses

URBANA -- Two Central Illinois women will spend time in federal prison for selling more than $1 million worth of knockoffs. Kimberly Nein, of Argenta, and Jannette Grant, of Bloomington, were sentenced Monday.

Both ran "The Purse Lady," where fake designer handbags, wallets and sunglasses were sold. Nein was sentenced to two years. Grant was sentenced to three.

The court also ordered both women to pay nearly $4,000 in restitution. They begin serving their sentences in October.
