A former secretary of an East Orange High School has been charged with creating and selling fraudulent school transcripts and pay stubs.
Wallace created and sold phony high school transcripts in return for $20 in cash each at least twice, according to detectives. She also allegedly created and sold fraudulent pay stubs from the school district and other fake places of employment for about $40 in cash transactions. Wallace had been employed with the school for more than 20 years. She resigned on Aug. 31.
Wallace was charged with third-degree official misconduct, third-degree tampering with public records and fourth-degree forgery.
She was being held in the Essex County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. If convicted of the charges, Wallace could face up to five years in state prison.
