HAMMOND | A Hammond man who pleaded guilty to using counterfeit money won’t spend any time in jail.

A U.S. District Court Judge on Thursday sentenced 22-year-old Terrence D. Benson to one year of probation and ordered him to pay $4,000 in restitution. A federal indictment alleges that numerous counterfeited $100, $50, $20, $10 and $5 bills were passed.

A co-defendant in the case, Javorious D. Raggs, 21, of Hammond, was reportedly arrested in southern Indiana on Thursday.

Co-defendant Krystal Charne Puntillo-Raggs, 21, of Hammond, was previously ordered to share jointly in making restitution, according to court records.
