This is a news release from the attorney general's office

A Senatobia resident is going to prison for selling counterfeit goods, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Keith Danner, 42, of Senatobia, pleaded guilty today, in Tate County Circuit Court before Judge Jimmy McClure , to felony sale of counterfeit goods, possession with intent to sell counterfeit goods and possession of codeine. Danner was arrested in March of 2014 as part of a joint operation between the Mississippi Attorney General's Office and the Senatobia Police Department, a member of the Attorney General's Intellectual Property Theft Task Force. Investigators linked hundreds of counterfeit items to Danner, including clothing and accessories.

Through cooperation among the Mississippi Attorney General's Office, Senatobia Police Department and the Tate County District Attorney's Office, Danner received twenty years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections with ten years suspended and ten years to serve, followed by five years of post-release supervision. He was also ordered to pay $1,000 toward investigation costs.

"I would like to thank the AG's office for assisting us with this case and getting these drugs and counterfeit goods off the streets," said Senatobia Police Chief Steve Holts. "Detectives Cote and West worked really hard on this case for our office."

"This case is a prime example of the importance of state and local collaboration to address the sale of counterfeit goods in Mississippi," said Attorney General Hood. "I appreciate Judge McClure for helping to ensure this defendant pays for his crime behind bars."

Danner was selling the counterfeit items from his car. The case was investigated by Lee McDivitt and Shannon Beaver of the Mississippi Attorney General's Office Consumer Protection Division and Detectives Matthew Cote and Jason West of the Senatobia Police Department. It was prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Shaun Yurtkuran, District Attorney John Champion and Tate County Assistant District Attorney Rhonda Amis.

"We applaud the efforts of Chief Holts and DA Champion and their offices, and we look forward to working with other local authorities on similar cases," said Attorney General Hood.
