Bradford Counterfeiter Pleads Guilty

The Bradford man who made counterfeit $20 bills and passed $400 off as real money has pleaded guilty.

30-year-old Shad Gutshall was charged after police found the counterfeiting operation while executing a search warrant in connection to a double murder and suicide in Limestone.

Gutshall’s co-defendant, 38-year-old Elizabeth Skok, was sentenced in March to 60 days to 23 ½ months in McKean County Jail. Prosecutors say the pair conspired with Daniel Podolski in the counterfeiting scheme. Podoloski is the man who killed his estranged wife and her friend, and then shot himself back in January. He died later at UPMC Hamot.

Gutshall is scheduled for sentencing on July 3.
