LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Three Lubbock women are headed to federal prison in a forged securities case. Paula Gonzales was sentenced on Friday to more than two years in prison. However, she has already filed an appeal. Gonzales was also ordered to pay $10,229.33 in restitution.
Stephany Gonzales must serve six months in prison in the same criminal case, and pay back $4,229.33. Stephanie Martinez must serve 6 months in prison and pay back $8,000.
The case involved blank checks that were stolen out of mail. For example, in one instance court records say Paula Gonzales filled out a check for $3,000 and used it to purchase two Wal Mart gift cards.
