MILWAUKEE COUNTY — One of three people accused of printing counterfeit cash, bragging about it online and then using it to scam people in the Milwaukee area failed to appear in court on Wednesday, October 28th — and a warrant was then issued for his arrest.

Those charged in this case include:

  • 29-year-old Leslie McNeal
  • 33-year-old Toya Dickerson
  • 24-year-old Durand Townsend

Townsend has been ordered remanded into the custody of the judge on return of the warrant — and his $500 cash bond has been ordered forfeited.

Townsend faces three charges in this case — three counts of forgery-uttering as party to a crime.

Dickerson has already been sentenced in this case, after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of theft-false representation (less than $2,500).

Dickerson was sentenced to serve six months in the House of Correction — but that sentence was stayed. Instead, Dickerson was placed on probation for one year.

McNeal faces a total of nine felony charges in this case — five counts of forgery-uttering, three counts of forgery and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for October 30th.
