PRINCETON — A rural Wyanet woman has pleaded guilty to the Class 3 felony of forgery.

Kim A. Parker, 54, entered an open plea of guilty on March 20 in Bureau County Court before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. The judge ordered the probation department to conduct a pre-sentence investigation and set a sentencing hearing for 1:30 p.m. May 28.

Parker was represented in court by Assistant Public Defender Jacob Frost. Prosecuting the case was State’s Attorney Patrick Herrmann.

On Oct. 1, 2013, a Princeton church reported a church check had been forged. Following an investigation by the Princeton Police Department, it was determined Parker had delivered the forged check to another sometime around Sept. 25, 2013. The check was in the amount of $567.
