ATTLEBORO -- A Rhode Island man police say used counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a North Attleborough Target store made a critical mistake.

The bills had a picture of President Abraham Lincoln on them. Real $100 bills bear a picture of Benjamin Franklin, while Lincoln’s portrait graces the $5 bill.

Dana Leland of Central Falls, R.I. was held on $1,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.

Police tell The Sun Chronicle the 29-year-old Leland used the fake notes on three consecutive days to buy items worth less than $25.

Leland’s lawyer said her client has struggled with drug and alcohol problems and untreated mental health issues, and had a relapse.

You think?
Let's hope for the lawyer's sake that his client has not paid him in cash lately...

Seems to have a good case of dumbness as well.
