DirecTV said it obtained a $1 million judgment against an Indiana man who allegedly was one of several individuals accused of trafficking illegal signal theft devices following a series of raids last year.

Li Sang, of Westfield, Ind., agreed to the judgment last month in a California federal district court. He has forfeited more than $660,000 in funds seized in a raid last year, along with other assets, including the value of the equity in his home, DirecTV said.

Sang, who operated a business known as Smart Card Solutions, was among several defendants who were targets of a series of civil seizures and impoundment orders in California, Texas and Florida that recovered an estimated $4.6 million in contraband.

Two other defendants from the case settled with DirecTV for more than $1.1 million, the company said. The defendants, including Sang, advertised and sold signal theft devices on the Internet and provided software programs for illegally modifying DirecTV access cards.

"You couldn't find a case that better illustrates the old maxim 'crime doesn't pay' than this one," said Larry Rissler, vice president of DirecTV's office of signal integrity. "This man lost his house and now has a healthy dent in his bank account as a result of his illegal activities."
