KRONENWETTER, WI (WTAQ) - A Kronenwetter woman was found guilty of making illegal copies of movies.

Kimberly Maciaz waived her preliminary hearing and entered a no contest plea. Judge Vincent Howard found her guilty of manufacturing counterfeit DVD movies and selling them online.

Kronenwetter Police raided the home of Maciaz and 21-year-old Megan Chenier and seized thousands of blank DVDs, plastic cases, hard drives, and some label making machines.

Maciaz faced up to 6 years in prison and $10,000 in fines plus possible federal charges, but ended up with six months in jail with work release privileges and three years probation.

Megan Chenier, who was Maciaz's accomplice, had charges dismissed under a separate court agreement.
