HAMMOND | A Hammond woman has agreed to plead guilty to using counterfeit money, federal court records show.
Krystal Charne Puntillo-Raggs was indicted on the charge in U.S. District Court in Hammond along with four others in January. The indictment alleges that numerous counterfeited bills in the denominations of $100, $50, $20, $10 and $5 were used by the defendants.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, according to the plea agreement.
Separately, federal prosecutors made a motion Wednesday to dismiss indictments against Bianca Tucker and Duane Coleman, who were originally charged in the case.
Co-defendants Terrence D. Benson and Javorious D. Raggs, both of Hammond, already have agreed to plead guilty to using counterfeit money, court records show.
