HUNTINGTON, WV — A former custodian who cleaned several offices in the St. James Building at 4th Avenue and 10th Street was sentenced to one year and one month in federal prison for her role in a stolen check scheme, according to The Herald Dispatch.
Catherine L. Scarberry and five other defendants plead guilty to conspiracy to possess and utter forged securities, the story stated.
The charges stem from several incidents in May and June 2003 when Scarberry used her position as a custodian at the St. James Building to gain access to at least four businesses; pre-printed, blank checks were taken, forged and passed off to her accomplices who then cashed them at various businesses, the story noted.
On top of the prison time, each of the defendants was ordered to pay $21,244.80 in restitution, the story added.
