On December 28, 2016, Anne Arundel County Police responded to a reported check fraud. The victim advised police that he had hired Charles Connors as a handyman, and permitted Connors to go inside his house unattended while working. When the victim noticed a large discrepancy in his account, he contacted the bank and discovered 17 checks written to Connors that were cashed from his account. The checks amounted to a total loss of $16,370.

The victim stated that Connors did not have permission to take the victim’s checks, write checks to himself, and forge the victim’s signature.

On April 5, 2018, following a two day trial, Connors was found guilty of theft between $10,000 and $100,000, 16 counts of counterfeiting a private document, 17 counts of possession of a counterfeit document, and 17 counts of issuing a counterfeit document.

On July 22, 2018, Connors was sentenced to 20 years of active incarceration.

Judge Alison L. Asti presided over the case. Assistant State’s Attorney Kathryn Bartz prosecuted the case on behalf of the citizens of Anne Arundel County.
