Fernette allegedly forged a document involving a civil issue, where she presented forged documents where she paid more than she actually did. The warrant was issued with a bond set at $5,000.

Also last Thursday, the sheriff conducted a check on the sex offender registry and discovered that 31 year old Cory Hursey of Oelwein was no longer living at his registry address.

And on Friday (Sept. 22) the sheriff charged 42 year old Mark Opperman of Hawkeye with Possessing a Firearm as a Felon. The firearm was recovered, and a warrant for Opperman’s arrest was issued, with a bond of $5,000. If convicted, he could face 5 years in prison.
