Springfield woman denies passing $7,000 worth of bad checks at Easthampton Savings Bank branches throughout area

Sharon Fuller, 32, of 104 Kenyon St., entered her pleas before Hampshire Superior Court Judge Richard Carey and was released on $5,000 personal surety.

Fuller, represented by attorney Elaine Pourinski of Northampton, faces nine counts each of larceny over $250, forgery of a check and uttering a false check.

According to the Northwestern district attorney’s office, Fuller, who has also used the alias Tomisha Davis, passed nine fraudulent checks at bank branches in Northampton, Easthampton, Belchertown, Southampton and South Hadley from July 20 to 24.

According to Assistant Northwestern District Attorney Matthew Thomas, who is prosecuting the case, the amounts of the checks varied, but most of them were for amounts of about $700.

The bank branches were able to provide the DA’s office with copies of the bad checks, a false driver’s license used to cash them, and video stills from surveillance cameras allegedly showing Fuller making the transactions, according to court papers.

Fuller was ordered to return to court Dec. 18 for a pre-trial hearing.
