MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A New York woman faces up to 10 years in prison for fraudulently obtaining cash from at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Monday that 29-year-old Rebecca Hill of Jamaica, Queens, pleaded guilty to using a counterfeit access device at the casino in Charles Town, W.Va.

Ihlenfeld said Hill used a counterfeit credit card to obtain a cash advance at the casino in 2010.

Hill entered her plea recently in federal court in Martinsburg. The plea agreement requires her to pay $31,000 in restitution to the casino.

Hill also faces a $250,000 fine when sentenced. A sentencing date hasn’t been set.
