A Lawrenceburg woman has pleaded guilty to cashing bad checks totaling more than $5,680 from an elderly couple she worked for.
Lisa Goodlett, 44, got blank checks from the couple she was a caretaker for and wrote 32 checks payable to herself in various amounts between $80-$400 during a six month period.
Goodlett faces 32 counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and exploiting an adult of more than $300.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland is recommending a sentence of three years and took no position on probation.
Goodlett will be sentenced at a later date.
Also in Franklin Circuit Court Friday, Debra Graner, 61, pleaded guilty to third-degree arson.
In October, Graner set a mattress and bed coverings on fire in a bedroom where she barricaded herself. Initially, Graner was charged with second-degree arson. Cleveland is recommending a sentence of five years and is not opposed to probation.
Graner will be sentenced at a later date.
