A New York dressage trainer was arrested Wednesday by state police for criminal possession of a forged instrument and petit larceny.
Kimberlee Martin-Keenan located in Warwick is accused of using a forged check to pay for horse fencing from a lumber company in March 2014. The company learned the check was fake and sought criminal action.
Martin-Keenan, who also goes by the aliases Kimberly A. Martin-Keenan and Kimberlee A. Martinkeenan, is no stranger to being accused of forging checks. In 2012, authorities arrested her in Pennsylvania on charges of felony forgery and for bad checks.
The charges were dismissed in 2013 due to her satisfactory completion of Dismissal Rule 586. “The information filed against the defendant [is to] be dismissed upon the condition that she pay the cost of prosecution in the amount of $507.80, and pay restitution in the amount of $2,100 to Hay Lady in Pennsylvania Kimberly Summers and such payments are to be made no later than today.”
