A Rochester man pleaded guilty to making counterfeit money.

Adrian Clemons, 32, of Rochester, pleaded guilty to making counterfeit United States currency. 

The Assistant U.S. Attorney handling the case says that Clemons made more than $10,000 of fake money using a scanner and a printer from January 2013 to March 2013. Officials say he then sold the counterfeit bills to others to pass at local stores as genuine currency.

Clemons will be sentenced in June. He faces 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
