SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - A Ripon man who was forging checks in Sheboygan and Fond du Lac Counties last April and May will be going to prison. 40 year old Larry Lapan had stolen his live-in girlfriend’s checkbook while she was hospitalized and in a coma. During the investigation, Lapan admitted he had argued with her and then went on a cocaine binge in Sheboygan and Milwaukee. Lapan wrote checks on the woman’s account and two others totaling nearly $9,000. He was sentenced recently in Sheboygan County Court to 3 years in prison to be followed by 5 years on extended supervision. He was also ordered to make restitution in the amount of nearly $3,000 in addition to whatever restitution is ordered in Fond du Lac County.
