Thursday morning, Sheryl Lynne Clark, 51, wanted on six counts of forgery in the first degree and one count of embezzlement, turned herself into the Garvin County jail, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reports.

From April 2014 to June 2015, Clark made six withdrawals from her daughter’s trust fund account by forging a judge’s signature. The girl was awarded more than $50,000 from the Workers’ Compensation Court after her father died.

Some of the money was used properly for her welfare and maintenance, but Clark withdrew more than $36,000 illegally.

OSBI special agents opened the case in December 2016 at the request of the Garvin County sheriff. Agents obtained an arrest warrant Feb. 9, 2017.
