Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced today that Nation Miller, 23, of Mexico, Maine pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court in Portland before Judge D. Brock Hornby to a federal charge of conspiracy to make counterfeit currency.

According to court records, beginning on July 3, 2012, Miller conspired with two friends to make counterfeit $50 bills of United States currency using a genuine $50 bill as a template. On July 4, 2012, Miller and the friends drove from Mexico, where one of the counterfeit bills was passed, to Old Orchard Beach, Maine, where several more counterfeit bills were passed. At the time of the offense, Miller was on federal supervised release after having served a federal prison sentence for the January 2009 burglary of a gun dealer in Mexico.

Miller faces a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment on the counterfeiting conspiracy charge. Sentencing is scheduled for mid-October 2013.

The investigation of this case was conducted by the Mexico Police Department, the Old Orchard Beach Police Department and the United States Secret Service.
