Former State Employee Sentenced for Counterfeiting
a Court Order

BALTIMORE, MD ( December 4, 2009) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former State employee Cora Boone-Gould of Temple Hills was sentenced to five years in jail, all suspended, for counterfeiting a court order and issuing a counterfeit court order. Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Crystal D. Mittelstaedt also placed Boone-Gould on 18 months of supervised probation and ordered her to perform 200 hours of community service.

Boone-Gould, a former employee of the Department of Parole and Probation in Prince George’s County, was convicted by a jury in October. On August 24, 2007, 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.

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 and Sgt. Glen Petterson of the Maryland State Police for their work on the case.
