RENO (AP) — A Reno woman authorities say operated a financial forgery lab has been ordered to serve from three years up to 12 years in prison.
Thirty-year-old Jessica Robertson was sentenced Thursday by Washoe District Judge Jerry Polaha.
Polaha also sentenced her to up to six years for burglary and five years for identity theft. The sentences are to run concurrently. Robertson pleaded guilty to the crimes.
She was arrested in February during an investigation by police into check and credit card fraud.
Authorities say Robertson forged and cashed stolen checks, and set up fraudulent credit card accounts in other people’s names using applications stolen from the mail.
When police searched her apartment they found a financial forgery laboratory.
