Hot Dog Thief to Spend 80 Years In Prison

In 2009, Charles Cleveland Nowden was arrested for attempting to buy two hot  dogs, two cokes and popcorn with a counterfeit $20 in Fort Worth, Texas. This week he received an 80-year prison sentence.

It looks like Nowden was buying for two at the movie theater. His poor date, Texas obviously doesn’t take too kindly to the term “wine and dine”…with counterfeit cash.

Upon getting arrested he was also found in possession of an additional $120 of counterfeit money. It turns out he has had a history of crime from selling stolen lawnmowers in 2011 to possession of a firearm.
