Sentencing planned in western ND counterfeit case

BISMARCK — Two men say they will plead guilty in a western North Dakota counterfeit case.

Shawn Patton, of Las Vegas, and Travis Linseth, of Watford City, are among three people accused of passing bogus bills in Watford City. Kasi Switzer, also of Las Vegas, pleaded guilty last week.

Patton and Linseth have both filed plea agreements in federal court.

Authorities say Patton and Switzer manufactured at least $10,000 in counterfeit cash. Switzer and Linseth are accused of passing some of the bills to several businesses in Watford City.

Sentencing is scheduled Dec. 20 for Switzer, Jan. 7 for Patton and Feb. 19 for Linseth.
