Woman sentenced to 6 months for forging petition signatures

The Associated Press

EVERETT, Wash. — A Marysville woman was sentenced Tuesday to six months in jail for forging hundreds of signatures on petitions in 2012.

The Daily Herald reports Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Anita Farris turned down a defense request for a sentence of community service, but Julie Klein will be able to serve her sentence on work release.

Klein was paid up to 75 cents for each signature she gathered. State officials became suspicious of the similar handwriting. About 1,000 signatures she submitted were not counted on a gay marriage referendum or an anti-tax initiative.
