Man to be sentenced for false bill

A La Salle man awaits sentencing for passing a bogus bill.

Timothy M. Rios, 29, pleaded guilty Friday to giving a woman a phony $100 bill, in April at a La Salle business, in exchange for five $20 bills. After Rios left, the woman saw the $100 bill was marked, "For motion picture use only." Such bills are used as props. Rios was arrested two days later.

Rios, who remains free on $1,500 cash bond, is to be sentenced Friday, May 4. Rios has been in prison.
