An Oil City woman was sentenced last week to 14 months to 10 years in state prison for forging checks belonging to three other people and cashing them for more than $11,000.

Authorities say 40 year-old Cara Salsgiver had worked for at least one of the victims.

Salsgiver was also sentenced to five years probation and was ordered to pay restitution.  She was also sentenced to five years of additional probation in a case in which she was alleged to have used a woman’s debit card to withdraw more than $2,000.  The incidents in the two cases occurred about a year apart.

Salsgiver entered guilty pleas to charges of forgery and identity theft in the first set of cases, while a dozen other charges were withdrawn in a plea bargain.  In the final case, she pleaded guilty to access device fraud, and three other charges were dismissed.
