U.S. Attorney's Office/Eastern District of Texas:

TYLER (KYTX) – A 45-year-old Marshall, Texas, man has been sentenced to federal prison for bank fraud violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.
 
Mark Alan McCullars pleaded guilty on Nov. 6, 2012 to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider.
 
According to information presented in court, beginning in May 2011, McCullars and co-defendant, Amanda Henderson, created counterfeit checks which appeared to be payroll checks from businesses in East Texas.  They also created fraudulent drivers' licenses so that they could cash the counterfeit checks at check-cashing businesses.  McCullars and Henderson cashed over 100 fraudulent checks resulting in over $55,000 in loss to check cashing businesses in East Texas.  They were indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11, 2012.  Henderson is awaiting sentencing.
 
This case was investigated by the United States Secret Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Ann Cozby.
