JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Terrance Smith, 39, pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of aiding and abetting the passing or attempted passing of counterfeit checks.

Smith faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in federal prison on each count. He also faces up to two years in federal prison for violating his supervised release for conspiracy to pass fictitious financial instruments.

According to the plea agreement, in or around October 2013, Smith and others began distributing counterfeit business checks that used the business checking account number of a church located in Jacksonville.

Shameka Robinson, one of Smith's co-defendants, pleaded guilty on July 1 to aiding and abetting the passing or attempted passing of counterfeit checks. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 30.

Robinson faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in federal prison.
