by Cris Ritchie Editor
HAZARD A Jeffersonville woman pleaded guilty to a bevy of forgery related charges during an appearance in Perry Circuit Court on Thursday.
Deanndra Napier, 23, was indicted on 13 counts of first-degree forgery and 13 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument in August 2010. The grand jury alleged that on 13 occasions in February 2008 Napier possessed and altered checks made out on the account of Dixie Recycling, a business in Hazard. Each of those counts are Class D felonies punishable by up to five years in prison.
According to the plea bargain announced on Thursday, Napier entered guilty pleas to all 26 counts in exchange for five years of supervised probation. She will also be ordered to pay restitution, the total amount of which will be determined at the time of sentencing on March 10.
Conditions of the probation include that Napier submit to weekly drug testing during the first year of her sentence, and random testing for the remainder. She will also be ordered to complete a 10-week outpatient substance abuse program and attend two Narcotics Anonymous or Lifeline meetings each week during the duration of her probation.
