Former Officer Waives Forgery Hearing

By  | 

Former Police Officer Cassandra Briggs will face forgery charges in District Court.

Briggs is serving a sentence for stealing from LPD's Santa Cop program. In December she filed a report that someone had misused her debit card.

Police have since learned that she gave her mother permission to use the card to withdraw money to help raise her child while she is in prison.

She is charged with 2nd Degree Forgery for the false report. Tuesday she waived her preliminary hearing and her case will be sent to District Court. Her first appearance will be January 30.
