Man Convicted of Counterfeiting Plot in Lubbock Federal Court

A federal jury has found an Abilene man guilty Friday of all 33 counts of an indictment accusing him of a counterfeiting conspiracy.

Prosecutors said the convictions subject Gary Don Robinson, 54, to up to 325 years in a federal prison when he's sentenced in Lubbock. U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings has set no date yet for that sentencing. Meanwhile, he remains free on bond.

Cynthia Watts and Deanda Crayton pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy and testified against Robinson. Both Abilene women also await sentencing.

U.S. Attorney Richard Roper says the three passed more than 32 counterfeit payroll checks at banks in and around Abilene.
