Previously convicted Lubbock counterfeiter convicted 2nd time

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For the second time in four years, a Lubbock man pleads guilty to counterfeit currency charges.  Tommy D. Alcorn, 56, admitted on Thursday that he passed fake ten-dollar bills at Lubbock businesses such as the Valero convenience store at 14th and University. 

Federal agents found more fake money in his apartment in March of this year.  He then confessed to passing the funny money in Lubbock, Plainview and Amarillo. 

Back in 2006 Alcorn pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge with a five year maximum sentence; he was sentenced to three years and had to pay back roughly $6,800 in restitution.  This time he'll be sentenced at a later date to no more than 20 years.
