A Lodi man who manufactured more than $277,000 in counterfeit money was sentenced Tuesday to 2 1/2 years in federal prison.

Clinton Earl Irons, 33, admitted in February that he turned $5 bills into $100 bills, which were ultimately passed through several states and to a military base in Iraq.

    even good people make poor choices. perhaps you're all beyond that. i know that to be factual. i just hope it's a lesson learned and that all the parties involved have better days ahead. decrease govt. decrease spending. decrease taxes. conservative constitutional common sense solutions. more power to AZ.

    I think I went to school with the Kishi twins' brother. He's younger than I am. I didn't really know him, but he seemed like a straight arrow, not wild at all. I guess every family has its black sheep.

    LNS-Remember the "hero" story you did on the National Gaurdsman DeAnda? Many people told you something was up with him, and you didn't listen, did you? Next time, put some critical thinking skills to use when someone in the military tells you they're and E3 after being in for 20+ years!

    All that risk for a measly $277,000! All he had to do is "buy" a house with no money down and cash back at closing like the rest of the flippers and walk with the money. Now our local estate agents want flippers to owe NOTHING when they walk after pulling a HELOC.
