WHITE PLAINS – A Mount Vernon woman is charged on three felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument for possessing a certificate of disposition, a motion to dismiss and a divorce decree.
Authorities said Nadia Gordon possessed the false documents in effort to assist her present husband in an immigration proceeding in New York City.
The forged certificate of disposition falsely stated that on October 30, 2018 the Mount Vernon City Court dismissed a criminal case against her current husband which had been pending. That document also contained the forged signature of the city court’s chief clerk.
The forged motion to dismiss falsely stated that the criminal district attorney of Westchester County requested the case against her current husband be dismissed and, in turn, falsely stated the city court considered the ‘motion’ and dismissed the case. That false document also contained the forged signatures of both an assistant DA and a Mount Vernon City Court judge.
The forged divorce decree falsely stated a final judgment and decree of divorce been Nadia Gordon and another individual was entered on October 12, 2018. The false document also contained the forged signature of another Mount Vernon City court Judge.
The investigation was worked jointly with Mount Vernon Police and is being prosecuted by the Public Integrity Bureau of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
