SEATTLE -- The U.S. attorney's office says a Renton man who made $40,000 selling generic pieces of glasswork on the Internet as Chihuly artwork pleaded guilty Wednesday in Seattle.

Thirty-five-year-old Michael Little could get up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 4 in federal court for wire fraud.
