Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced today that
Brittany Wildes, 24, of Westbrook, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge
George Z. Singal to 1½ years imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release
for conspiracy to pass counterfeit United States currency. Wildes also was ordered to pay
$13,300 in restitution. Wildes was convicted of the charge in October 2012 after a trial.
Court records reveal that between October 2011 and January 2012, Wildes and her co-
conspirators passed counterfeit $100 bills at several retail stores in southern Maine and northern
New Hampshire. On several occasions, they returned the merchandise purchased with
counterfeit money and received real money from the stores in exchange. Wildes and her co-
defendant, Jamal Bradberry, were arrested in January 2012. Bradberry pled guilty on September
21, 2012 and is due to be sentenced in March.
The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the United States Secret
Training and seminars for Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement Agencies.
