Saturday, September 14, 2013

A Cumbrian man who sold bootleg albums of Beatles music has been jailed. Paul Parkin was charged after police and trading standards officers raided his home in West View, Alston, following a tip-off by the British Recorded Music Industry Limited.

Bootleg vinyl LPs and illegal copies of music CDs were recovered. At an earlier hearing the 57-year-old pleaded guilty to 23 offences. The judge at Carlisle Crown Court sentenced him to four months in jail. Ten of the charges Parkin admitted were specimen counts of attempting to distribute vinyl records, with the other 13 being counts of possession of goods with intent to cause loss to another.
