York Woman Gets Probation for Forging Checks


A York woman has been given two years of probation and 90 days in jail for writing fraudulent checks.

Cassandra Tritt, 27, was sentenced Monday in York County District Court. Judge James Stecker ordered the jail term to be served in three increments of 30 days. He said the time could be waived later.

Tritt had pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of felony forgery in January.

York police were told in November that a man's checkbook was missing and that checks had been fraudulently written at numerous local businesses. Prosecutors say Tritt forged 29 checks on the account, totaling nearly $1,800.

Prosecutors say Tritt has already paid restitution to the man.
