Alabama Teen Held for Making $10 Bill

Its a lesson that a 13-year-old Russellville boy won't soon
forget.

The teen was placed in juvenile detention Monday after police
said he tried to purchase his school lunch with a fake $10 bill.

Police said the middle school student admitted he made the bogus
currency on his home computer.

Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett said the youngster was
charged with possession of a forged instrument.

Its a Class B felony under Alabama law that carries a possible
prison term of 2-20 years in prison.

Hargett said the boy could also face federal charges.
