An employee of a physician-billing service pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of passing about $100,000 in forged checks. Christine Ann Wilson, of Beechview, deposited checks issued by health care insurance companies into her own account between May 2004 and March 2006, according to prosecutors. Wilson was indicted in December on 124 counts of forgery and pleaded guilty on Thursday. She faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
U.S. District Judge Gustave Diamond scheduled a sentencing hearing for Nov. 6.
