James Bennett is a counterfeiter whose forged documents threatened to destroy a Catholic charity. (CI: "The Saint")


  • Bennett appears to be based on notorious counterfeiter Mark Hofmann. Hofmann became infamous for forging numerous documents purported to be historical documents from the Mormon faith, although it wasn't just Mormon history that Hofmann fabricated. Widely regarded as one of the most accomplished forgers in history, Hofmann is especially noted for his creation of documents related to the history of the Latter Day Saint movement. When Hofmann's schemes began to unravel, he constructed bombs to murder two people in Salt Lake City, Utah. As of 2008, he is serving a life sentence at the Utah State Prison in Draper.
