VERNON CHRISTIAN FOUND GUILTY OF FORGERY

November 23, 2010

VERNON CHRISTIAN, dob: 5/11/1938 of Kirbyville, Missouri

was found guilty today after a two day jury trial of the class C
felony of forgery.

A jury of eight (8) men, four (4) women deliberated a little
over an hour before reaching their verdict this afternoon,

Jan 25,20011.

In November of 2007,

a property owner on Gunnison Road called the Taney County
Collector’s Office

to find out about his property tax bill because he did not
recieve one for that year.

From the collector’s office he learned that he did not own his
property anymore and that the land had been deeded to the
defendant, VERNON CHRISTIAN.

From an investigation by the Taney County Sheriff’s Department
it was learned that on November 22, 2006,

VERNON CHRISTIAN had forged the signature of the property owner
and recorded a fradulent deed
with the Taney County Recorder of Deeds.

In preparation for trial,
a handwriting analysis was ordered by the Taney County
Prosecutor’s Office and the forged signature showed significant
similarities to VERNON CHRISTIAN’S handwriting.

In response to the verdict,

Taney County Prosecuting Attorney,
Jeffrey M. Merrell stated,

“[u]nfortunately, Taney County is in one of the busiest judicial
circuits in Missouri and it took a long time for this case to
reach trial.

They are lazy in Taney County!

I am grateful for the victim’s patience in seeing
this case through,

and I am also thankful for the willingness of
Associate Circuit Judge Tony Williams in hearing this case

on a
special setting so that the victim can finally receive closure
after three very long years waiting for trial.”

Formal sentencing is set for January 25, 2010 at 1:00pm in front
of Taney County Associate Circuit Judge Tony Williams.

The class
C felony of forgery has a range of punishment of one (1) day to
one (1) year in the Taney County Jail....SHOCK TIME...

or one (1) year to seven
(7) years in the Missouri Department of Corrections big house....

and/or a fine
not to exceed $5,000.

Mr. Christian was convicted on a hand writing expert, who was payed some where from $2500 to $ 5000 by the state of Missouri or Taney county, Forgery cases are won by who gets the best expert witness. There is no expert who can 100% say that one mans writing is the same Good luck on your appeal Vern .Coon Creak aint the same with out you.
