COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A Columbus woman has been given jail time and probation for helping her boyfriend pass counterfeit cash.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1KfXY8c ) that 37-year-old Stacy Ballou was sentenced last week in Platte County District Court to two years of probation. She also was given 120 days in jail, to be served in 30-day increments unless waived by the court. Last month Ballou pleaded no contest and was convicted of two counts of aiding and abetting a felony. Prosecutors dropped 13 other counts in return for her pleas. She’s also known as Stacy Segura.

Court documents say surveillance video showed 37-year-old Brian Dieter exchanging the counterfeit bills on Feb. 8 at a convenience store where Ballou was working as a clerk. Dieter has pleaded not guilty to forgery.
