A Casper man pleaded not guilty Friday to exploiting a vulnerable adult, and check fraud charges for forging 35 checks.
45-year-old Roy Davis was booked into the detention center for the charges.
Court papers say Davis and his wife had built a large amount of debt and reportedly wrote the checks to pay off the debt.
He then admitted to sheriff's investigators he forged the checks and collected more than $19,000 from the victim.
The checks go back as far as April 2017.
Davis told investigators he had done wrong by writing the checks.
