Iowa Man Pleads Guilty In Counterfeit Cash Case
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) A 27-year-old Sergeant Bluff man has pleaded guilty in his counterfeiting and chase case.
The Sioux City Journal says Brandon Miller pleaded guilty on Thursday to forgery, eluding police and assaulting an officer. Miller faces up to 15 years in prison when he's sentenced July 22.
Authorities say Miller was driving a pickup while fleeing officers in Sioux City and North Sioux City, S.D., in March. Authorities say Miller crashed the truck into a parked car and two police cars, injuring a deputy.
Police say Miller, Alison Daugherty and Shaun Wakefield had used counterfeit bills before the chase began. Police say Daugherty and Wakefield tossed counterfeit cash out the truck window during the chase.
The pair are scheduled to begin trial later this month. They live in Sioux City.
