Baltimore Man Pleads Guilty To Counterfeit Checks Charge

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Baltimore man has pleaded guilty to plotting to possess counterfeit checks and possessing child pornography.

Tyrone Jackson, 52, entered the plea Friday. He will be sentenced March 1.

According to a plea agreement, Customs and Border Protection seized a package addressed to Jackson at BWI which contained 80 envelopes with counterfeit checks totaling nearly $500,000. Jackson says he was supposed to re-mail the checks.

When authorities were searching Jackson’s apartment, they found hundreds of videos and images depicting child pornography on his computers and digital media.
