CLINTON -- A 44-year-old woman is accused of cashing enough checks to collect more than $15,000 from her ex-boyfriend's account.
Lisa Baxter appeared in 2nd District Court on Monday and is charged with 16 counts of forgery, third-degree felonies.
Clinton Police Chief Bill Chilson said Baxter wrote out checks to the tune of $15,400.
According to court documents, Baxter took checks, wrote them out to her mother, signed the name of the victim on the checks and then had her mother cash the checks. The fraud occurred during a two-year span, from Jan. 1, 2011, to Dec. 31, 2012, and happened 16 times.
Baxter has another court hearing set for May 8.
