Houma notary accused of forging documents

HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies say a Houma notary public is accused of forging official documents.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter tells The Courier (http://bit.ly/ZWjcms ) 53-year-old Kim Marie Kimbrell was booked Wednesday with two counts each of malfeasance, forgery and filing false public records. She is being held in the parish jail on a $35,000 bond.

Larpenter says the investigation began in May when a Terrebonne Parish resident filed a complaint against Kimbrell.

The victim told police his signature had been forged on documents and his property sold without his knowledge or consent.

The sheriff says a second resident filed a complaint against Kimbrell, alleging she notarized documents concerning the sale of a vehicle without the legal owner being present.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
