PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman who pleaded guilty to her involvement in a fake coupon ring has been sentenced to two years in prison and may have to pay up to $5 million in restitution.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 41-year-old Robin Ramirez also was sentenced Thursday to seven years of probation.

She was credited with 287 days already served behind bars and a judge says the restitution amount will be determined later.

Ramirez pleaded guilty to counterfeiting in March.

She and two other women were arrested last July after an eight-week investigation by Phoenix police.

Police say they seized more than $25 million worth of fake coupons and $2 million in other assets from the women's Phoenix-area homes.

1 of the suspects allegedly bought counterfeit manufacturer coupons overseas and sold them online.
