ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - A 37-year-old Tupelo man will spend 21 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to the charge of counterfeiting.

Tellie Mairidith allegedly passed fake money at a Tupelo Dollar General on May 15, 2014. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1FBY72v) a second count of counterfeiting was dropped as part of the plea agreement.

U.S. District Judge Debra Brown accepted the plea Wednesday and sentenced Mairidith to 21 months in prison and probation for three-years. He was also ordered to pay a $100 fine and to pay $50 restitution to Dollar General.
