FARMINGTON -- A woman who pleaded guilty to felony forgery has been sentenced to serve one year in jail, three years probation and to stay away from checks. Alma Frazier, 33, of Magna, was involved in what police say was the largest bogus check scam in the state, along with her mother and sister. She pleaded guilty to six counts of third-degree felony forgery on Feb. 9. She was charged with 22 counts originally. Her mother, Raelynn Courmier, 57, of North Salt Lake, pleaded guilty to counts of third-degree felony forgery and was sentenced to six months in jail.
Second District Court Judge Thomas L. Kay also ordered Frazier to stay away from her mother during her probation. He ordered Frazier to pay $18,000 in restitution.
Syracuse police say the pair, plus Roselynn Ellis, 35, the second daughter wrote bogus checks.
