ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A Springfield, Ill., man has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for passing counterfeit $10 and $20 dollar bills in northeast Missouri.
A federal judge sentenced 41-year-old Ronald Olivier to 33 months on Tuesday. He and two Hannibal, Mo., residents, 31-year-old Bobby Waters and 27-year-old Sabrina Renee Inlow, pleaded guilty last year.
Waters was sentenced to one year and one day in prison; Inlow was sentenced to 18 months.
Prosecutors say the fraudulent money was passed in Bowling Green and Hannibal. Police found evidence in the car used by the trio that included a scanner, a printer and a "parent" $20 bill that had been used to make counterfeit money.
