Town Justice Is Charged With Hiding Her Real Address

A justice for a town court in Orange County, New York has been charged with making false statements and obstruction of justice, allegedly to hide the fact she lives in Rockland County.

Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Joon Kim says Lurlyn Winchester, a justice for the Town Court of Monroe, was charged with making false statements in connection with a loan application for a residence in Monroe, to satisfy the residency requirement of her position as town justice. She also was charged with obstruction of justice for providing law enforcement officers, who questioned her about the mortgage loan, with false documents, including fabricated rent payment receipts. Winchester was arrested Wednesday at her home in New City in Rockland County.
