Detroit Man Charged With Use Of Counterfeit Debit Cards

A crimininal information was filed charging Tyrone Nix, 22, of Detroit, with illegal possessing and using counterfeit debit cards, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Secret Service. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Thomas A. Karol.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
