Jennifer Cristine Larsen, 39, has been charged with 11 felonies: second-degree theft, two counts of third-degree computer crime, and eight counts of third-degree forgery. Larsen also faces single class-A misdemeanor counts of computer crimes and unlawful use of a financial card.
Court records show Larsen is accused of having committed the crimes over a near 10-month period in 2020.
Cache County prosecutor Barbara Lachmar said Larsen allegedly took multiple checks from an employer and forged them to herself while managing the company’s payroll. Lachmar said the amount stolen was over $5,000. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
