Jessica Cook, 47, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony, and second-degree criminal use of a public benefit card, a misdemeanor.

In addition to presenting a forged prescription, Cook attempted to purchase the drug with a New York State benefit card that did not belong to her, said Lt. Steve Osarczuk of the New Paltz police.

She was sent to Ulster County Jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. Cook was scheduled to appear in Town of New Paltz Court at 6:00 p.m. on September 21, 2011.
