Ashley King, 21, in a bright pink jail trusty suit and black Nike sneakers, allocuted that she wrote out two personal checks from her uncle’s checkbook to herself, endorsed them, and successfully cashed both on two separate occasions, for an amount totaling $275.
District Attorney Greg McCaffrey recommended that she receive four months of weekend incarceration at the Livingston County Jail, with work release eligibility.
King pointed out during her plea that she never signed the checks, she only filled in the amounts, dated them, and endorsed them. However, according to New York Criminal Statutes and Rules, the law only requires that one falsely complete a public document to be guilty of Forgery in the Second Degree.
