Former Paralegal Pleads Guilty

In Hartford, former paralegal Cheryl Zeman admitted to a single count of felony forgery. Under a plea agreement, 14 counts of felony forgery charges were dismissed.

Zeman was facing a total of 15 counts related to allegations that she made phony court orders by forging signatures and counterfeiting the official Superior Court seal in order to benefit a divorce case client.

At the time of the alleged crime, she was a paralegal at the law firm of Griswold, LaSalle, Cobb, Dowd & Gin, which currently represents the city of Hanford and the city council.

It remains unclear whether Zeman would avoid jail time for her crime as a result of the plea bargain.
