The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - LOCAL -

A woman was charged with five counts of writ­ing bad checks to her land­lord for a res­i­dence that she and her hus­band rented in But­ler Twp.

Maria Scal­leat wrote checks from the ac­count of her hus­band, Ja­son Sl­i­zof­sky, and other ac­counts that to­taled $13,553 dur­ing the year since Au­gust 2016, ac­cord­ing to a prob­a­ble cause af­fi­davit.

Scal­leat paid $4,000 in cash to her land­lord for the res­i­dence on St. Johns Road so the debt owed for the bad checks is $9,553, the af­fi­davit said.

She is sched­uled for a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing be­fore District Judge Daniel O’Don­nell in Su­gar­loaf Twp. on Dec. 18.
