The Secretary of State's office is reviewing its systems after learning a man indicted on fraud charges may have falsified state documents.

Phillip Colley was federally indicted last summer on allegations he and others skimmed at least $650,000 in benefits from mentally disabled people. Last week, he was jailed again on suspicion of violating the conditions of his release.

Papers filed this month also say in October, Colley went to the Secretary of State's office and fraudently changed the name of the registered agent of Blanket Corporation, his former employer, to his own.

The Secretary of State's office now says it could change policies, like sending copies of registered agents to corporations after a change is made. And officials say they will initiate new legislation that would stiffen the penalty for such a crime.
