MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — She must have gotten her degree in felony audacity.
A New Hampshire woman has been charged with filing phony documents in court dropping drug possession and stalking charges against herself by posing as a prosecutor.
Lisa Landon, 33, of Littleton, is accused of busting into the court’s electronic filing system late last year and submitting fake documents in three separate cases against her, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Prosecutors sensed something fishy was going on when they were contacted by a state forensic examiner, who asked if they wanted him to still perform a competency evaluation on Landon as he had seen documents that said the charges had been dropped.
“The file purported to contain a nolle prosequi (drop the charges) filed by Assistant County Attorney Patrice Casian, but it quickly became evident to the state that the document, as well as other documents in the file, had been filed fraudulently,” Superior Court Judge David Anderson wrote in a ruling.
The indictment also alleges Landon filed a phony order from a judge waiving filing fees in a lawsuit she brought against Hillsborough County. And she allegedly filed an order on behalf of a relative to halt guardianship proceedings involving Landon’s child.
