WISCONSIN RAPIDS — A 21-year-old Arpin woman, Kyssandra E. Ady, has been charged with three counts of uttering a forgery in Wood County Circuit Court following incidents that occurred in April and May 2016. Uttering a forgery is a class H felony that comes with up to $10,000 in fines and/or six years imprisonment for each charge if convicted.
According to the criminal complaint, in May 2016 an 18-year-old male reported that he had been with friends in the city of Marshfield when he was offered $20 to cash two checks at a Marshfield financial institution.
The male alleged that he saw Ady write his name in the “pay to” line of two checks prewritten out for $250 each. According to court documents, the 18-year-old cashed the checks at the bank and was given $20 in exchange.
The man stated that he was an account holder of the financial institution and later received a letter saying that the checks were written out of a closed account and that he was liable for their repayment.
After being notified of the account holders for which the checks were written out, police questioned the account holders and learned that one was the father of an alleged accomplice of Ady.
In addition, the mother of the alleged accomplice had reported a month earlier that four checks totaling $250 each had been written out to individuals that she did not know and that she had not given consent for any of the transactions.
Ady was identified in two other incidents in which she entered an individuals’ names on checks she did not have permission to issue.
