LAWTON, Ok (RNN Texoma) -

A Lawton man is behind bars charged with depositing a bogus check to bond himself out of jail.

According to court records, 30-year-old Daniel Smith was in jail when a counterfeit check for over four-thousand dollars was deposited into his bank account. Most of it was used to bond out of jail on earlier charges.

The bank recognized the check was bogus and notified authorities, noting that Smith also had several other counterfeit checks with them. Smith, who has a history of convictions on uttering forged instruments, is now charged with a felony value of false pretenses.

He is expected to appear in court in June.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
