Parker receives probation, jail time

PRINCETON — A Wyanet woman has been placed on two and one-half years probation after pleading guilty to the Class 3 felony of forgery.

Kim A. Parker, 54, appeared in Bureau County Court July 10 before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. In addition to the probation sentence, Parker was ordered to serve six months in the Bureau County Jail, beginning Aug. 1, with day-for-day credit and also credit for one day served.

According to the Bureau County Circuit Clerk’s office, Parker was also ordered to pay fines and court costs totaling $1,192 from her bond, to pay a $25 monthly probation fee, and to pay restitution of $726. She is also required to perform 200 hours of public service work by April 24, 2015.

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. Parker was indicted by a Bureau County grand jury on the Class 3 felony on Nov. 15, 2013, and entered a guilty plea to the charge on March 20.
