GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Prosecutors say an Ocean Springs man has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of smuggling into the United States an illegally imported car made in Japan.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1uAagMm ) a federal grand jury indicted 31-year-old Kendall Noble on four counts of wire fraud and one count of smuggling in the case. In exchange for the plea, the three wire fraud charges were dismissed recently.

Noble faces a maximum prison term of up to 20 years and up to a $250,000 fine.

According to the indictment, Noble knew a 2001 Nissan Silvia he brought to South Mississippi did not meet Department of Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency standards. In addition, the car is a right-hand drive.
