A Westchester woman is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly possessing multiple forged documents that included the names of judges and an assistant district attorney in an effort to assist her husband’s immigration proceedings.
Nadia Gordon, of Mount Vernon, was arraigned this week in Mount Vernon City Court on three counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, all felonies, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. Gordon was released and ordered to surrender her passport.
Between October last year and this March, Gordon allegedly possessed three forged documents, a Certificate of Disposition," a "Motion to Dismiss," and a divorce decree. It is further alleged that she had the forged documents in an effort to assist her husband in an immigration proceeding in Manhattan.
Scarpino said that:
- The “Certificate of Disposition” falsely stated that on Oct. 30, 2018, the Mount Vernon City Court dismissed a criminal case against her husband which had been pending. That false document also contained the forged signature of the City Court’s Chief Clerk.
- The forged “Motion to Dismiss” falsely stated that the “Criminal District Attorney of Westchester County” requested the case against her husband be dismissed and, in turn, falsely stated the City Court considered the “motion” and dismissed the case. That false document also contained the forged signatures of both an Assistant District Attorney and a Mount Vernon City Court Judge.
- The false divorce decree stated a final judgment and decree of divorce between “Nadia Gordon” and another individual was entered on Oct. 12, 2018. That false document also contained the forged signature of another Mount Vernon City Court Judge.
Gordon is scheduled to appear back in court on Wednesday, Aug. 21 to respond to the charges.
