Toni A. Gordon, 20, New London, was charged Nov. 23 with forgery uttering.
On June 3, the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department began investigating a criminal complaint against Gordon. She was accused of stealing a check from the farm where she worked.
The owners of the farm said they hired Gordon in February. In May, they believed Gordon showed up to work under the influence of drugs due to her behavior. Gordon allegedly gave the wrong milk to five calves and four of them died. She was subsequently fired and her pay docked to help cover the cost of the calves.
According to the criminal complaint, the farm owners paid Gordon with a $100 check on May 29. On June 3, they discovered that a check for $475 had been made out to Gordon and cashed at a New London credit union.
Gordon faces up to six years in prison if convicted.
