Two accused in counterfeit check ring sentenced

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two people in a Lubbock counterfeit check ring were sentenced late last week to prison time.

Benjamin Vasquez must serve 33 months in prison and pay restitution of $12,959.27. Catherine Glover must serve 30 months and is jointly responsible for paying the same restitution as Vasquez.

An indictment earlier this year accused Vasquez, Glover and two others of writing fake checks on accounts from several local banks and then passing the checks at a long list of local businesses.

Vasquez and Glover were sentenced Friday in Lubbock federal court.
