Guilty Plea In Casper Fraud Case
One of three people charged in an alleged bank scam in Casper is now admitting his role in the crime.
At an appearance Friday morning in Natrona County District Court, 46-year-old Rashan Burton changed his plea from not-guilty to guilty on one count of conspiracy to commit forgery. Prosecutors say in September, Burton, along with 30-year-old Jessica Tanner and her 52-year-old mother Dannette were arrested after the younger Tanner attempted to make a fraudulent cash advance on a credit card at a First Interstate Bank branch near Eastridge mall.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will recommend a prison sentence of 18-24 months for Burton. The Tanners have pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the incident and are awaiting trial.
