PRINCETON — A Princeton woman has pleaded guilty to the Class 3 felony of forgery.
Sara L. Davies, 20, entered her guilty plea on Dec. 10 before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. She was sentenced to two and one-half years conditional discharge, ordered to pay $912 in fines, fees and court costs, and ordered to pay $87.19 in restitution. She was also ordered to serve four consecutive weekends in the Bureau County Jail and to perform 200 public service hours.
Davies was represented in court by Public Defender Michael Henneberry. Prosecuting the case was First Assistant State’s Attorney Anthony Sciuto.
On June 21, the Princeton Police Department investigated a report of a stolen check from the resident of Davies’ sister and brother-in-law. It was discovered the check had been used on June 16, at Beck’s North in Princeton to buy fuel and merchandise in the amount of $87.19. The signed receipt consisted of the forged signature of the defendant’s sister. When police questioned Davies, she admitted to taking a blank check from her sister’s checkbook at a time when she was visiting her sister’s residence.
Davies had no prior criminal record.
