Waterville Woman Charged With Bank Fraud

A Waterville woman was charged with bank fraud after she allegedly cashed or attempted to cash approximately 20 stolen checks, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Corisa J. Tolford was charged via criminal information. The charges relate to bank fraud beginning approximately February 7, 2011 and continuing through April 1, 2013.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Postal, Cleveland.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Ava Dustin.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
