MASON CITY — It’s probation for a woman from Manly accused of forgery.
36-year-old Emily Buttshaw was arrested in January after a Mason City business owner told police that Buttshaw attempted to cash a check from the business made out to her for $500.
The business owner according to court documents said he never issued a check to Buttshaw and did not know how she had one of his checks.
Buttshaw pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced on Monday by Judge Karen Salic to a suspended five-year prison sentence and placed on five years probation.
Buttshaw is awaiting trial in Worth County on possession of methamphetamine charges.
