Man Pleads Guilty to Trying to Cash Counterfeit Check at Webster Groves Credit Union
The St. Louis man faces up to 10 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
A St. Louis man pled guilty Nov. 28 for attempting to cash a counterfeit check at a Webster Groves credit union, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
Rodrigues Cosey, 35, admitted to violating his supervised release from a 2009 federal conviction for a similar crime. Cosey's plea states he "attempted to negotiate a phony check purportedly drawn on the account of a local union at a bank branch in Webster Groves," the release said.
Webster Groves Police Department investigated the case after bank personnel alerted them of suspicions.
Cosey's sentence will be determined Feb. 26, 2013 for violating his release and for the new offense. He faces 24 months in prison for his first offense and up to 10 years imprisonment and a fine up to $250,000.
