NYSP news release

WATERTOWN, NY — On Nov. 30, 2022, State Police in Watertown arrested Trudy A. Latimer, 49, Felts Mills, NY, for Possession of a Forged Instrument second-degree, a class “D” felony, and Offering False Instrument for Filing first-degree, a class “E” felony.

Latimer was arraigned in the city of Watertown Court and remanded to the Jefferson County Jail on no bail due to two previous felony convictions.

The arrest stemmed from a complaint that she was operating as a hearing aid dispenser trainee, in the town of LeRay, under a forged license, which did not exist with the New York Department of State Licensing Services, troopers said.

Latimer also allegedly provided false information when completing an application for employment by saying she has not been convicted of a crime, which she knew to be false as she has two prior felony convictions, troopers said.
