TYLER (KYTX) – A 23-year-old Longview woman has been sentenced to federal prison for bank fraud violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.
 
Amanda Henderson pleaded guilty on Nov. 6, 2012 to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider.  Henderson must also pay restitution in the amount of $14,659.25.
 
According to information presented in court, beginning in May 2011, Henderson and co-defendant, Mark Alan McCullars, created counterfeit checks which appeared to be payroll checks issued by 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 a loss of $14,659.25 to check cashing businesses in East Texas.  They were indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11, 2012.  McCullars was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison on Feb. 6, 2013.
 
 
This case was investigated by the United States Secret Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Ann Cozby.
