A Windsor woman has pleaded guilty to forgery and petty larceny charges in court. 36-year old Michelle Cormier was in Windsor Superior Court Tuesday to answer to nine charges, including three felony charges and six misdemeanor charges and entered a plea deal. In front of presiding Judge Theresa DiMauro, she pleaded guilty to three of the nine counts, including one of the felony charges and was given an 18-month deferred sentence with her probation conditions still being enforced.
She was advised that if she sought to get a job, she must notify employers of the charges if the position involves dealing with money. The charges stemmed from an incident where she was hired to clean a Windsor woman’s house, and upon finding a checkbook, wrote $425 worth of checks to herself.
Her crime was revealed when the homeowner received an image of the check on a bank statement that she did not make out herself, and immediately reported it.
The 59-year old victim is still expecting reimbursement from Cormier who had originally pleaded not guilty back in February.
The Valley New reports that after the court date yesterday, she told a reporter that she didn’t do the crimes and had pleaded guilty to “get it over with”.
