A Stevens Point woman will spend three years on probation for her role in a counterfeit money scheme.

Thursday in Portage County Court, Clark was also ordered to pay back the money to the businesses she scammed. That amount totals about $1,000.

Walter Wright, 37, was also convicted in connection to the crime. He was indicted with more serious charges . In January, he was sentenced to three years in prison and was ordered to pay $10,000 restitution.
