Brandon Cory, 17, 602 S. Union St., Warsaw, was arrested Thursday on an adult charge of counterfeiting, a level 6 felony. He was waived to adult court on April 22.
According to the motion to waive juvenile jurisdiction, filed April 22, there was probable cause to believe Cory committed an act, which would be a level 6 felony if committed by an adult. The document also states the act was part of a repetitive pattern of behavior and Cory is beyond rehabilitation under the juvenile justice system.
Kosciusko County Prosecutor Dan Hampton filed the charge of counterfeiting against Cory on April 24 in Kosciusko Superior Court 1. The charging document stated Cory, “knowingly or intentionally, possessed more than one written instrument, knowing that the written instruments were made in a manner that they purported to have been made by authority of one, to wit: United States Government, who did not give authority …”
According to information obtained from Warsaw Police Department, Cory and another juvenile attempted to make change for a counterfeit $20 at a Warsaw business. The pair was located at which time police found additional counterfeit money in their possession. The second juvenile has also been waived to adult court, but has since reportedly turned 18.
