A Texas man has been sentenced to 80 years in prison for trying to buy movie theater hot dogs with counterfeit cash.
Charles Cleveland Nowden was sentenced Friday, two days after being convicted of forgery. He must serve at least 15 years before he’s eligible for parole.
Two years ago Nowden used a fake $20 bill when trying to buy hot dogs, popcorn and soft drinks at a movie theater. Prosecutors say after his arrest, a police officer found more counterfeit bills worth $120.
