Elburn woman arrested on forgery charges

By on August 20, 2009

The Kane County Sheriff’s Department conducted an investigation into an incident where a homeowner had received two counterfeit twenty dollar bills at a garage sale. The sale occurred at the victim’s residence on Willow Creek Drive in unincorporated Kane County over the weekend on July 24 and 25.

Sheriff’s Detectives reviewed the case with the Kane County States’ Attorney’s Office, who authorized one count of forgery against Doris Adamson, of the 500 Block of Main St., Elburn. On Aug. 14, Adamson was arrested while at the Kane County Judicial Center.

It does appear that this case was connected with a similar incident in Sugar Grove.

The charge against Adamson is not a proof of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
