Woman arrested for forgery after kids miss 70 days of school

POINTE AUX CHENES, LA (WVUE) - Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies arrested a woman accused of forging excuses from doctors after her two daughters missed almost 70 days of class in the school year.

Alisa Lirette, 34, of Pointe-aux-Chenes, was charged with 33 counts of forgery.

Last week, the TPSO was alerted to a situation at Pointe-aux-Chenes Elementary School in which two students had missed approximately 70 days.

Upon investigating the situation, it was revealed that the two students were sisters and their mother had been providing the school officials with excuses from physicians that were forged.

Lirette was questioned Monday by detectives and admitted to forging at least two doctors' signatures on 33 documents that she prepared and presented to school officials to have her children excused from school, according to Sheriff Jerry Larpenter.

Lirette was taken to Terrebonne Parish jail. Her bond was set at $2,500.
