DENVER – The Colorado signature collector who pleaded guilty to two felony counts of forgery last November for turning in dozens of forged signatures on a petition for a U.S. Senate candidate was sentenced to probation and community service Friday in Denver.

Maureen Moss, 45, will be on probation for four years and will have to perform 250 hours of community service, a Denver District Court judge ruled Friday morning.

Moss was originally charged with 34 felony forgery counts after Denver7 uncovered 10 forged signatures and investigators at district attorney’s offices in Denver, Arapahoe and Jefferson counties confirmed there were 24 further instances.

The forged signatures were all put on a petition drive to get Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jon Keyser on June’s primary election ballot. He made the primary ballot, but took fourth in the primary, which was won by Darryl Glenn.

Court documents also revealed that Moss had an extensive criminal history regarding fraudulent and forged credit card usage.
