CORPUS CHRISTI -- The seven people charged in connection with a DVD and CD bootlegging operation first uncovered during a 6 News investigation last year appeared in federal court Friday afternoon.

In an idictment filed Wednesday, federal prosecutors allege the suspects sold copyrighted DVD's and CD's from January to August 2012.
Judge Ellington set $20,000 personal recognizance bonds for each of them with the exception of Hernandez who has a criminal history. Judge Ellington also appointed attorneys for each of them.
The suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Mar. 6.
If convicted, each faces up to five years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
