Woman Indicted for Forging State Health Insurance Eligibility Forms

July 25, 2011

Marla Reddish has been indicted for allegedly forging her ex-husband’s signature. The indictment charges that Reddish forged the signatures required on the eligibility forms for state health insurance.   

Reddish is charged with one count of Forgery in the First Degree (O.C.G.A. § 16-9-1), a crime punishable by up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.00.

Assistant Attorney General Greg Lohmeier is prosecuting the case on behalf of the State of Georgia. Edward Mitchell and Lohmeier presented the case to the Fulton County Grand Jury on July 22, 2011, and the indictment was filed the same day with the Fulton County Superior Court.

Members of the public should keep in mind that indictments contain only allegations against the individual(s) against whom the indictment is sought. A defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty, and it will be the government’s burden at trial to prove the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of the allegations contained in the indictment.
