Clinton, Md., counterfeiter sentenced

By Mary Pat Flaherty

Rontrail Jamar Williams, 35, of Clinton was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud for running a multi-state counterfeiting operation that produced checks and driver's licenses, federal prosecutors said.

For the past six years, court documents state, Willams used the bogus checks to buy items at various stores then returned them for cash.

Williams also coached others on how to commit similar crimes in a scheme in nine states and the District of Columbia, according to prosecutors in Alexandria for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Williams was ordered to forfeit and pay restitution in the amount of $639,598.97.
