Woman Sentenced in State Fair Collapse Forgery Case
An Indianapolis woman has been sentenced to four years for making false claims to get money from the funds that help victims of the Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse tragedy.
The Marion County Prosecutor's office says Sandra Hurn pleaded guilty to felony forgery Friday. She was sentenced to two years home detention and two years probation. Hurn was also ordered to repay $7,800 restitution and complete 80 hours of community service.
Officials say Stephanie Murry also pleaded guilty to felony forgery back on August 27th. Murry has not yet been sentenced. Officials say she has violated the terms of her release and there's currently a warrant out for her arrest.
Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Anne Harrigan says both women violated the public trust by making false injury claims to get money from the Indiana State Fair Remembrance and Tort Claim Funds.
The stage rigging collapse killed seven and wounded dozens of others.
