Tansen Fayant was charged with a total of 4 counts of forgery, 2 counts of bad checks, and 1 count of fraudulently obtaining dangerous drugs.  She pleaded guilty to all charges, admitting to writing checks out of other people's accounts exceeding $1,500.

She also admitted to writing checks out of 1 of her own accounts that were closed.  Fayant also told the judge she tried to buy prescription drugs that were not hers.  Judge Reynolds sentenced her to 20 years with 10 suspended for the 1st count, 10 years for each of the 5 subsequent counts, all suspended, and 5 years suspended for the final count.  She's also been ordered to pay restitution, and Judge Reynolds recommended her for chemical dependency treatment to deal with her opiate addiction.
