A former Graterford Prison corrections officer, accused of forging notes from a doctor in order to get additional sick time from the state, was back behind bars late Tuesday in Montgomery County after failing to appear for two court appearances.
Authorities are looking for Samantha Sinkler after bench warrants were issued for the 36-year-old woman when she failed to show up in court this month for sentencing on two DUI convictions.
Authorities say Samantha Sinkler, 36, failed to show up for sentencing earlier this month on two DUI cases and failed to appear last month for a hearing on forgery and identity theft charges.
A Montgomery County judge has ruled prosecutors can continue to freeze the state retirement account of a former corrections officer at Graterford Prison accused of faking a deadly disease to steal sick time from her co-workers and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Prosecutors say Samantha Sinkler forged letters from her doctors, claiming she was being treated for cancer and seizures.
