Sprague, 21 years old, of Dover, New York, for 10 counts of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony, and 10 Counts of Petit Larceny, a Class A Misdemeanor.

Pursuant to an investigation conducted by State Police it was discovered that Sprague had taken 10 checks from a family member and cashed them.
