Man Gets 80 Years For Using Fake Cash To Buy Hot Dog At A Movie Theatre

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A US man who tried to buy hotdogs, popcorn and drinks with a fake twenty dollar bill has been sentenced to 80 years in prison.

Charles Cleveland Nowden, 48, used the counterfeit money at a Texas movie theatre where he was trying to purchase two hot dogs, two Cokes and a tub of popcorn."


I can`t afford to buy hot dogs, pop corn and drinks at a movie theatre without taking out a second mortgage. Printing counterfeit money to be able to afford taking your family to the movies is not as crazy as it seems.

However I don`t feel any sympathy for Nowden he has a rap sheet longer than the arm Herman Cain uses to grope the nether regions of his victims. This career criminal has previous convictions for possessing counterfeit cigarettes, bank fraud, stealing an 18-wheeler and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

I`m delighted this loser has been sentenced to 80 years behind bars, but I hate to think of all the money we are wasting to keep him alive. Nowden should be fed nothing but movie theatre hot dogs, he will be dead in a couple of years.
