Former State Employee Convicted of Counterfeiting a Court Order - Prince George's County

BALTIMORE, MD ( October 30, 2009) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former State employee Cora Boone-Gould of Temple Hills was convicted by jury in the Prince George’s County Circuit Court of counterfeiting a court order and issuing a counterfeit court order.

Boone-Gould was formerly employed by the Department of Parole and Probation and worked in the Prince George’s County Courthouse in Upper Marlboro. On August 24, 2007, Ms. Boone-Gould created a fraudulent court order extending guardianship of her nephew three years beyond the Court-ordered termination date. She then faxed the counterfeit order to an attorney in North Carolina in connection with the settlement of an estate in which her nephew was a beneficiary.

Counterfeiting and issuing a counterfeit document are both felonies and punishable by up to 10 years in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. Sentencing has been set for December 4, 2009 before the Honorable Crystal D. Mittelstaedt.

This case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Criminal Division and the Maryland State Police. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Megan Limarzi for her work on the case.
