Central Kentucky Students Facing Charges Over Bogus Doctors' Notes
Bogus doctors' notes have some Spencer County students facing charges. Several fake notes popped up at Spencer County High School, where school officials noticed a high number of absences. They took a closer look at the notes and called police to investigate.
Taylorsville Police say dates had been changed on some of the notes and fake doctor's names were used on others. These are notes from real offices, with information changed. Police are warning students this is a serious matter, with felony charges being filed.
Over half a dozen students at a few different schools have been charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument. The investigation is continuing, with more charges possible. Police say it's possible some parents were even involved.
