Donna A. Perez could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $10,000 if convicted of forgery. Her arraignment is set for Nov. 29 in Albany County District Court.

Court documents say a Laramie police officer on April 21 began to investigate a claim that a check from a local church may have been altered. The officer reportedly learned that the church gave a check to Perez to help pay her rent.

According to the affidavit, the check was written for $100 to be paid to Perez’s landlord. However, the check allegedly appears to have been altered to $400 by turning the number ‘1’ into ‘4’ as well as changing the written word ‘one’ to ‘four’.

Perez allegedly admitted to changing the number and dropping the check into the rent box at her apartment on Feb. 10, per the affidavit. She reportedly told the officer that her adult daughter changed the word ‘one’ to ‘four,’ and the pair discussed the plan to alter the check beforehand.

The daughter also admitted to changing the word ‘one’ to ‘four,’ according to the affidavit.

The church which wrote the check is not named in court documents.
