Sometimes it breaks my heart when I have to write certain stories.  Other times, I just shake my head and am completely appalled. The Big Lead via The Patriot News is reporting that Penn State commit was arrested earlier this month for using counterfeit money at a Harrisburg McDonald’s. Issah was charged with two felony counts each of forgery and conspiracy to forgery and four misdemeanor charges of theft by deception. He is cooperating with police and it is unlikely he will receive any jail time. According to arrest papers filed with District Judge James Lenker, Issah and two other suspects fled when police were called to the scene. The other two suspects were later identified and apprehended and both of them implicated Issah in the alleged scheme, police said. They said the other suspects, long-time friends of Issah, said Issah had passed counterfeit bills at two locations. Police said Facebook messages between Issah and one suspect were intercepted and proved that Issah knew the money was fake and that he solicited a plan to “clean” it. The bogus cash was used to buy the three food at local fast-food restaurants, police said. Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said he has been told that Issah is cooperating with the township police in the counterfeit cash investigation. He said it is unlikely that Issah would receive a jail sentence even if convicted of the alleged crimes. “As a first-time adult offender he’s likely looking at a probationary sentence or a diversionary program,” Marsico said. It will be interesting to see how Penn State responds to the charges and if he still has a scholarship this fall. Smarten up Nas.
