By Alicia Barnes

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) _ A 23-year-old Horry County man admits he made counterfeit $10 and $100 bills on a computer.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said Tuesday that Parish Gagum of Conway pleaded guilty in federal court in Florence to making counterfeit money.

Prosecutors say Gagum printed the money between March 2009 and May 2010. They say Gagum and another person used the counterfeit bills at businesses in Conway in April 2010.

Sentencing will be at a later date. Gagum faces a fine of up to $250,000 and 20 years in prison.
