GARNER, Iowa – A Winnebago County man is pleading not guilty to cashing forged checks in Hancock County.

30-year-old Jacob Aaron Schimmelpfennig of Scarville is charged with four counts of forgery. He’s accused of cashing four forged checks worth a total of $1,150 at First State Bank between June 4 and October 18. Authorities say video footage identifies Schimmelpfennig as the one presenting and cashing the checks.

Schimmelpfennig has waived his right to a speedy trial. Forgery is a class “D” felony in Iowa, punishable by up to five years in prison.
