Hanover teen convicted of trespassing, not counterfeiting

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Charges against an Ashland teenager were amended today during a counterfeit cash case.

Megan Seifert, 18, was convicted of trespassing, instead of counterfeiting.

She says she was paying for gas at the East Coast Station in Ashland when the clerk said that the two $20 bills she paid with weren't real.

Seifert was sentenced to six months in prison -- all suspended.

She will have to perform community service.
