The two defendants left in the controversial Nike theft ring pleaded guilty today to stealing over $680,000 in rare sample sneakers. We first broke news of this massive theft ring in December and the final verdicts have now been reached.
Although the Portland Business Journal reports that Tung Wing Ho and Jason Keating, an ex-Nike employee, have entered guilty pleas to the charge of conspiracy to transport, receive and sell stolen goods, the government recommended a relatively light sentence of only one year and one day.
The pair had allegedly been part of a theft ring with a third conspirator named Kyle Yamaguchi, who also worked for Nike and was sentenced just weeks ago, to steal and sell more than 630 pairs of unauthorized sample sneakers from Nike between September 2012 and March 2014.
Looks like the Three Musketeers motto "All for one and one for all" need not apply here.
