WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Wichita store owner who admitted selling fake luxury items will learn her fate this week.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Tuesday scheduled sentencing of Glenda Sue Morgan on Friday.

Morgan pleaded guilty in October to one count of trafficking in goods bearing counterfeit designer labels such as Prada and Chanel. She is the owner of The Fabulous Store.

Morgan faces a fine of up to $2 million and up to 10 years imprisonment, although she is likely to receive far less, if any, prison time under sentencing guidelines. Prosecutors are recommending a sentence at the low end of the guideline range.

Investigators seized 400 replica items with a retail value of $14,000 from Morgan's shop. The goods would have been worth $140,000 had they been genuine.
