WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge spared a Wichita businesswoman from prison, but imposed a $25,000 fine for selling fake luxury goods.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Monday sentenced Glenda Sue Morgan to five years of probation and ordered her to make payments of not less than $500 a month toward the fine. She pleaded guilty in October on one count of trafficking in goods bearing counterfeit designer labels such as Prada and Chanel at her shop, called The Fabulous Store.

Morgan tearfully apologized to the court before sentencing.

The judge said he was deeply troubled by the fact Morgan apparently didn't learn from a prior encounter with law enforcement in which no criminal charges were filed.

Investigators seized 400 replica items with a retail value of $14,000 from Morgan's shop.
