Tyler man sentenced for possession of counterfeit money

Released by the U.S. Attorney's Office - Eastern District of Texas:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A 21-year-old Tyler, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.

Bryan Scott Mayfield pleaded guilty on Nov. 8, 2011 to possession of counterfeit money and was sentenced to eight months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis.  Mayfield was also ordered to pay $1,750.00 in restitution.

According to information presented in court, on June 4, 2011, Mayfield assisted another person in passing counterfeit money at a Wal-Mart in Gilmer, Texas.  Mayfield knew a cashier at the Wal-Mart and contacted her to see if she would be working on June 4, 2011.  Mayfield told her that he and others were planning to use counterfeit currency and she agreed to let them make the purchase at her cash register.  Mayfield was present and assisted in the purchase of a laptop computer with eight counterfeit $100 bills.  A federal grand jury returned an indictment on Sep. 15, 2011, charging Mayfield with federal crimes.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, The Tyler Police Department and the Gilmer Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Noble.
