Edmond woman sentenced for forging autographs

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Edmond woman is sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to selling autographed footballs with forged signatures over the Internet.

Mindy Lynn Cummings also was ordered to pay more than $83,000 in restitution.

In February, Cummings pleaded guilty to mail fraud. The prosecution presented evidence of more than 250 victims who were duped into purchasing fraudulent football memorabilia on the Internet.

Cummings admitted to using the Internet site e-Bay to auction footballs and other memorabilia signed by former University of Oklahoma football coaches and the 2000 through 2003 teams. The fake autographs included Bob Stoops, Barry Switzer and Bud Wilkinson.

U.S. Postal Inspector Dana Hansen testified Friday that the Bud Wilkinson signatures were on footballs manufactured after his death.
