Livingston Parish counterfeiters sentenced to federal prison
BATON ROUGE - Two Livingston Parish counterfeiters were sentenced to federal prison by the Department of Justice on Tuesday.
28-year-old Philip Slay, of Denham Springs, was sentenced to 40 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. 29-year-old Brandi Robinson, of Livingston, was sentenced to 15 months in prison also with three years of supervised release to follow.
“Counterfeiting is not a victimless crime. My office will continue to work with the U.S. Secret Service and our other federal, state, and local partners to help ensure that we protect citizens and businesses from criminals who circulate counterfeit money in our community,” said U.S. Attorney Walt Green following the sentencing.
The Secret Service said it remains committed to suppressing the counterfeiting of U.S. currency.
