Woman charged with forging checks from former employer

A Eureka Township business owner was able to let a Dakota County Sheriff's deputy know about a potential check forgery last summer before it ever happened.

The business owner called the sheriff's department June 8 to say he believed a former employee had written a $2,000 check to herself on June 5. According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office, 50-year-old Ursula Kahle Freseman, the former employee in question, cashed that check June 10. She cashed a second check, this one for $2,500, June 9.

According to the complaint Freseman, a Lakeville resident, admitted to police she'd cashed the two checks, both of which she'd written out on her last day working for the business.

If convicted on a felony charge of check forgery Freseman could face up to 10 years in jail and fines of up to $20,000.
