Man Sentenced to 7.5 years in Prison for Selling Dirty Socks

A 33-year-old Michegan man pleaded guilty Wednesday in Lenawee County Circuit Court to a fraud charge after selling a backpack full of dirty socks he presented as a $2,800 load of weed, according to a report on reports:

Michael Rafael Suarez, 33, and Ypsilanti couple Joshua Wayne Cope, 37, and Rebecca Sue Sharp, 34, are accused of driving down to a Rasin Township mobile home park to make the fraudulent sock deal with a man and a woman on July 8, the report says.

“I didn’t bring any weed,” Suarez told the judge, according to the Lenconnect report. “I brought a bag of dirty socks.”

Suarez pleaded guilty to false pretenses between $1,000 and $20,000 and faces up to 7.5 years in prison, the report states.
