MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma says a Muskogee woman has been sentenced to 47 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to counterfeiting charges.
The office said Thursday that 27-year-old Taisha Chantil O'Brien was also ordered to pay about $5,000 in restitution.
