The Albany teenager, sentenced to prison for stealing a pair of sneakers when he was 16, is once again in trouble with the law. 

Marquis Dixon, now 20, was arrested Tuesday by Bethlehem Police for allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a gas station. 

Dixon was a focal point in the state's "Raise the Age" campaign which resulted in legislation that no longer treats 16 and 17 year olds as adults for non-violent crimes. 

Dixon is now behind bars at the Albany County jail for these new charges.
