A Florida man who pleaded guilty to passing counterfeit $100 bills in South Dakota has been sentenced.
Twenty-two-year-old Rafiq McDonald, of Orlando, Fla., was sentenced to six months in federal custody. U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says McDonald will serve the sentence at the same time as a state sentence in Wisconsin. McDonald also was ordered to pay $400 in restitution.
Johnson says McDonald and two accomplices passed bogus bills at various businesses in Sioux Falls in December 2012. Co-defendants Macquillie Woodard of Minneapolis and Timothy Oben of Eau Claire, Wis., earlier pleaded guilty. Woodard was sentenced to 10 months and Oben two years behind bars.
