A Grand Forks woman accused of trying to pay her tab at El Roco bar and grill with a fake $100 bill is facing federal counterfeiting charges.


Lolita Jewel Amick, 33, has pleaded not guilty to charges of making and using phony money. If convicted of both counts, she could receive a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison.

Amick was arrested Sept. 7 after a bar employee spotted the bogus bill, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett Shasky said Thursday.
