Texas Man Guilty Of Passing Counterfeit Bills In Oklahoma

The United States Attorney's Office says a Texas man has pleaded guilty for using counterfeit bills in Seminole County.

Court documents indicate Charles Sims, 35, from Snyder, TX, knowingly used the counterfeit bills at a Wal-Mart in November of 2012.

An indictment indicates the $5 bills were altered to look like $100 bills.

Both the Seminole Police Department and the United States Secret Service investigated the crime.

A judge will sentence Sims at a later date. The maximum sentence is no more than 20 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
