The usual suspects

Once upon a time, the typical counterfeiter was a forty-year old ex-con white male who had worked in the prison print shop where he had picked up the technical fine points while incarcerated. The average run of false notes was in the thousands of dollars and the criminal law responded accordingly.

Now, the typical counterfeiter is a fifteen year old boy who has recently acquired a color inkjet or laser printer and a copy of Photoshop. He typically makes one or two bills, tells his friends and is usually caught and confesses within a month or two after the experiment starts. The federal criminal law is for the most unprepared to deal with these new criminals (there’s no juvenile section in the federal criminal courts).
