For the second time in a week, Sheridan resident Cassidy Quarterman was in Sheridan County Circuit Court. On March 11th, she went before Magistrate John Botten on charges of using hydrocodone and other drugs not prescribed to her. She admitted to having a drug problem, and Botten had set a $5,000 cash bond on her.
On March 18th, Quarterman made her initial appearance before Judge John Sampson on 19 counts of forgery. Quarterman forged the signature of her grandmother, Erin Quarterman, on several checks totaling over $8,000. Judge Sampson informed the court that Quarterman must have her Preliminary Hearing in ten days, and kept the same $5,000 cash bond set by Botten.
If convicted on Felony Forgery, Quarterman faces a possible sentence of not more than ten years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both. She may have to pay restitution, as well.
