A New Hampshire woman hoping to avoid jail allegedly posed as a prosecutor and then had drug- and stalking-related charges against her dropped by filing bogus documents with court officials, according to reports.

Lisa Landon is now facing one charge of false personation and six counts of falsifying physical evidence after submitting fake documents in three separate court cases late last year and filing documents via the New Hampshire court's electronic system on several occasions, reported New Hampshire Union Leader.

Landon's plans were foiled after a state forensic examiner who had been scheduled to perform a competency evaluation on the 33-year-old noticed in her court file that the charges had been dropped. Prosecutors grew suspicious after the examiner contacted them asking whether or not to go forward with the examination.

"The file purported to contain a nolle prosequi (drop the charges) filed by Assistant County Attorney Patrice Casian, but it quickly became evident to the State that the document, as well as other documents in the file, had been filed fraudulently," Superior Court Judge David Anderson wrote in a ruling regarding the case.

Landon also reportedly falsified a judge's decision to waive filing fees in a lawsuit she filed against Hillsborough County and allegedly faked an order on behalf of a relative in a child custody case involving her child. Landon's criminal history includes charges related to stalking and drug possession as well as burglary and theft.
