Vail Woman Charged With Felony Forgery In District Court

A Vail woman accused of falsifying multiple checks appeared in Carroll County District Court last week. On Thursday, 28-year-old Kalie Marie Gaines was charged with forgery, a class D felony. Gaines is accused of writing numerous checks from Aug. 29 to Sept. 6 from a checkbook reported stolen in 2016. The name signed on the check was different from Gaines’ and she did not have permission from the victim to write the checks. Gaines was released from custody on Monday, Oct. 30 after posting a $500 cash bond. If found guilty of the charge, she faces a maximum prison term of five years and up to $7,500 in fines.
