Mo. transcript problems lead to forgery charge

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A warrant has been issued for a prospective Southeast Missouri State University student accused of forging her college transcript. The Southeast Missourian reported that 22-year-old Danielle M. Feagin, of Malden, has been charged in Cape Girardeau County with a single count of forgery.

She is accused of attempting to obtain admission and merit-based scholarships worth thousands of dollars with a fake transcript from Three Rivers Community College. The charge was filed after an admissions office employee at Southeast Missouri State University noticed problems with the transcript.

Court records say the transcript showed Feagin had a perfect 4.0 grade point average and 89 credit hours to transfer to Southeast. An investigation revealed she had 37 credit hours at Three Rivers, with a grade-point average of 2.4.
