Renton man who sold fake Chihuly glass gets 5 months

The Associated Press

A man who sold fake Dale Chihuly glass art has been sentenced to five months in prison by a judge who said he would have preferred to send him to basic training in the Army.

Michael Little, of Renton, pleaded guilty to wire fraud after his arrest last spring. He admitted he sold more than $22,000 worth of counterfeit art to a collector who planned to donate the pieces to the art museum at Gonzaga University.

U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik said prison might do him good. He said Little sleeps until 10 a.m. every day, takes a two-hour afternoon nap and spends much of the rest of the time on his computer.

Lasnik told the defendant he “needs to get out of the house,” and said he’d send him to basic training if he had the authority.
