ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A federal jury has convicted a Chickaloon woman of making and transferring counterfeit money so that it would be used as genuine money.
Anice Williams was part of a six-member counterfeiting team that made and passed approximately $7,350 in $100 bills, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
Previously convicted in the scheme were Arthur Williams, Sr., also of Chickaloon; Arthur Williams, Jr. and Natalie Williams who were visiting from Texas, and James and Vicki Shanigan of Wasilla.
Prosecutors alleged that the Williams made the phony $100 bills and the Shanigans helped pass the money to merchants.
Anice Williams will be sentenced Oct. 25. She faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
