Making or Using Slugs (O.R.C. 2913.33)

When you create, possess, or use a false token or coin in a coin-operated device, you are violating O.R.C. 2913.33, Making or Using Slugs.

Slugs are counterfeit items used to fool coin-operated machines, which can be everything from a pay phone to a laundromat washing machine to a vending machine.

The charge is a second degree misdemeanor, with penalties of up to 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.

This charge is often leveled against young people who think they’ve figured out a way to get something for nothing, which results in having a misdemeanor record that can damage their chances of getting into school, a good job, and even obtain decent housing.
