Convict asks judge for fiancée's sentence

PORTLAND -- A convicted counterfeiter facing a prison sentence asked a Portland judge to also sentence him to the term awaiting a co-defendant he loves. He said he was to blame for his fiancée's crimes.
Federal Judge Anna J. Brown told Dung Ahn Nguyen, 40, she couldn't do that. She sentenced him Tuesday to nearly three years in prison.
Then she sentenced his fiancée, Khonesavan Khim Savanphayphan, 28, to about a year in prison.
The Oregonian reports the two were part of a ring that used ordinary computer printers, high-quality paper and dabs of hair gel to produce $70,000 in bogus bills that circulated in the Northwest.
