Fifteen Charged with Forging Signatures
Valley News Live
The number of people accused of forging signatures on a statewide petition drive has risen to 15. They include nine NDSU football players and three former players, who are charged with signing a name other than their own on a petition. They were paid between 9 and 11 dollars an hour to gather signatures of people who wanted to see more state tax dollars go to conservation projects.
Another petition was for a measure that would have given North Dakotans a chance to vote on the use of medical marijuana.
The maximum penalties for the Class A misdemeanor are a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
