Woman admits forging college transcript

JACKSON, MO (AP) - A 22-year-old woman has admitted submitting a phony transcript to Southeast Missouri State University.

The Southeast Missourian reported that Danielle Feagin of Malden pleaded guilty to forgery charges on Monday. Sentencing will be May 24.

Feagin told a judge she committed the forgery in hopes of gaining quicker acceptance to Southeast Missouri State. The transcript showed Feagin had a 4.0 grade point average and 89 credit hours at Three Rivers Community College. Actually, she had a 2.4 GPA and 37 credits.

Prosecutors are recommending a suspended sentence and probation.
