CIRCUIT COURT: Powell pleads guilty to I.D. deception

April 25, 2013

Rachelle Powell

COLUMBIA CITY — A Florida woman who once lived in Whitley County pleaded guilty to identity deception in Whitley County Circuit Court Monday.

Rachelle Powell, who formerly resided in Larwill, pleaded guilty as part of a plea arrangement.

The deal included a suspended sentence of 1.5 years for the Class D felony charge.

Whitley County Circuit Court Judge James Heuer said the Class D felony could be changed to a Class A misdemeanor if Powell served her probation well.

A count of forgery, a Class C felony, was dismissed.

Powell pleaded guilty to signing her ex-husband’s name to a loan modification on a home once owned by both of them.
