KINGSTON – A Highland woman was arrested recently in connection in an investigation into forgeries.
Members of the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office report that Sheilann B. Jones-Blackwell, age 36, was arrested for allegedly committing several forgeries while on probation with Ulster County, according to officials.
Ms. Jones-Blackwell was charged with the felonies of Forgery in the Second Degree and Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the Second Degree.
Deputies previously received a report from Ulster County Probation alleging while on probation, Ms. Jones-Blackwell forged notes for her husband, who is also on probation, excusing him for missing court mandated courses, using stationary and names from the business she is employed, said officials.
Ms. Jones-Blackwell was arraigned in Ulster Town Court and released to reappear on a later date.
The investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible.
