York, NE (AP) - A 27-year-old York woman has been given two years of probation in a check fraud case.
Online court records say Cassandra Tritt was sentenced on Monday in York County District Court. Judge James Stecker also sentenced Tritt to 90 days in jail, to be served in three increments of 30 days. He said the time could be waived later.
Tritt had pleaded no contest to felony forgery after prosecutors lowered the charge.
York police were told in November that a man's checkbook was missing and that checks had been fraudulently written at numerous local businesses. Prosecutors say Tritt forged 29 checks on the account, totaling nearly $1,800.
Prosecutors say Tritt has already paid restitution to the man.
