Ex-Plant Worker Pleads Guilty to Theft

Former Employee of Texas Money Plant Pleads Guilty to Taking Stolen Cash Across State Lines
Fort Worth, Texas :A former employee of a plant that makes more than half of America's paper money pleaded guilty Wednesday to taking stolen cash across state lines.
Donald Edward Stokes Jr., 39, also had been charged with stealing $30,000 from the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing Western Currency Facility in Fort Worth. But as part of a plea deal, federal prosecutors dropped the theft of government property charge, which carried a maximum 10-year sentence.
Stokes faces up to 10 years in federal prison without parole when he is sentenced in October for interstate transportation of stolen property. His trial on both charges had been set for next week
