NEW YORK (AP) — A New York art dealer has pleaded guilty to charges that she participated in a 15-year scam to sell counterfeit art imitating famous artists like Jackson Pollock.
Glafira (glah-FEE'-rah) Rosales of Sands Point on Long Island entered the federal plea Monday in Manhattan.
Rosales admitted her role in the scam as she pleaded guilty to nine charges, including wire fraud and money laundering. The charges carry a potential prison term of up to 99 years.
She was accused in an indictment of charging two Manhattan art galleries more than $30 million for 63 fake art pieces.
Prosecutors said she failed to report millions of dollars in income over the years.
Her sentencing was set for March 18, but it's expected to be postponed.
