Woman Gets Nearly 5 Years In Prison For Forged Doctor Note

   SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — A California forger who showed up in court with a phony doctor note seeking a sentencing delay has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison.

   Michelle Elaine Astumian pleaded no contest in January to felony forgery counts. She collapsed in court last month when the prosecutor said the note was a fake and the judge ordered her into custody. The 41-year-old woman had been free on $45,000 bail.

   This week, she was back in a San Luis Obispo County courtroom and was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.
