Items seized by police from a Pennsylvania dealer convicted on theft by deception charges are still being held after the state attorney general said he wanted to wait until after Roger Lee Hooper’s appeals were heard.
Hooper, of Lower Allen Township, was found guilty last October of selling fake sports memorabilia including re-sealed wax packs and non-genuine autographs via eBay. Police removed several items from his home and they were scheduled to be sold by the state to help satisfy judgments and pay a fine of over $129,000.
Judge J. Wesley Oler, Jr. sentenced Hooper to 10 to 23 months in the Dauphin County Work Release Center Jan. 4. Hooper was allowed to remain free on $30,000 bail while he filed appeals in the case.
Hooper asked for a new trial but that request was denied in a ruling last month.
