Jennifer Martin Given Probation For Check Fraud
A Casper woman will not serve any prison time, after admitting she passed bad checks.
Jennifer Martin was given a five-to-eight year suspended prison sentence, with five years of probation, after pleading guilty to two counts of check fraud and one count of obtaining property under false pretenses.
Investigators say Martin opened at least two bank accounts, and deposited checks from one bank into her other account, attempting to show a balance to withdraw cash.
Employees got suspicious when a pattern developed and it was determined that Martin had insufficient funds.
Investigators later discovered she had purchased a car, and some jewelry and then tried a similar check cash scheme at banks in Cheyenne.
She has also been ordered to pay more than $9,000 in restitution.
