2 face federal prison for counterfeit $100 bills

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to federal prison terms after they admitted using counterfeit $100 bills for living expenses in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Frank J. Polozola sentenced 31-year-old Waylon Franklin Sims of Vivian, La., to two years in prison.
The Advocate reports Polozola also ordered Sims to serve two years of post-prison supervision by federal investigators.
Twenty-five-year-old Nathaniel Lee Osburn of San Antonio was sentenced to seven months in prison and two years of post-prison supervision.
Both men remain in custody in Louisiana because they still face state charges related to the counterfeit cash.
