South Carolina U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles announced Tuesday that a federal grand jury returned an indictment against a Kershaw County man for passing counterfeit currency.

Nettles said the grand jury indicted Ryan Scott Jordan, 50, of Lugoff, on one count of passing counterfeit currency, a violation of Title 18, Section 472 of the U.S. Code. The maximum penalty Jordan could receive is 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.

Nettles said the case was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service and will be prosecuted by Assistant S.C. U.S. Attorney T. DeWayne Pearson of the Columbia office.
