York Woman to be Sentenced for Check Fraud


YORK, Neb. (AP) -- A March sentencing hearing has been scheduled for a 27-year-old York woman who's been convicted in a check fraud case.

Online court records say Cassandra Tritt pleaded no contest to a felony forgery charge after prosecutors lowered the charge. Her sentencing hearing is set for March 24 in York County District Court.

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.
