A California woman has denied claims that she participated in an interstate plot to con banks out of money.

52-year-old Dannette Tanner entered a not guilty plea to one count of forgery on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Tanner was part of a multi-state fraud ring that included her daughter, 30-year-old Jessica Tanner, and 46-year-old Rashaan Burton. Jessica Tanner and Burton are also from California.

Jessica Tanner was arrested in September after trying to make a cash advance on a credit card at a First Interstate Bank branch in Casper. After her arrest, she admitted to investigators that the trio had executed the scam several times in the past, including earlier that week at a bank in Cheyenne.

Authorities also say Jessica Tanner committed the same scam at another Casper bank earlier that day.

Police eventually found and arrested Burton and Dannette Tanner.

Dannette Tanner also pleaded not guilty to a drug misdemeanor on Tuesday. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison on the forgery charge.

All three people have been jailed on $100,000 bond.
