Chicago man first says the check was his payment for work in Milwaukee, then changes his story to claim a man dropped him off to cash.
Tony Earl Hines was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Thursday with one count of uttering a forgery. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
Hines told officers the check was good and he got it for cleaning hotels in Milwaukee, but couldn’t say where one of the hotels was even though he claimed to be staying there since Monday. When confronted with the fact he would have been paid $65 an hour to perform the amount of work her claimed to do to correspond with the value of the check, Hines then changed his story to say a man had dropped him off to cash the check in exchange for $500
