An alert court clerk recognized the signature of a child custody order didn’t belong to the Fond du Lac County judge she’d been working for during the past 15 years. That helped bring three forgery charges against 51-year-old Kristine Flynn, who allegedly forged the papers while she was an inmate at Taycheedah Correctional Institution.
Flynn was trying to gain custody of the disabled son of another inmate. She said in a letter than she also would need about $250,000 from the boy’s bank accounts to take care of him.
Flynn also pled guilty Wednesday to five felony counts of tax credit fraud for filing phony homestead tax credits while in prison. She was released from TCI towards the end of June, but has been in custody at the Fond du Lac County Jail on the tax fraud charges.
