Attorney Accused of Forging Judge's Signature

Hamilton County attorney Andrew Stinnett has been charged with forging Judge Howell People's signature on an order of protection for one of his clients. The client quotes Stinnett as saying, "I'm friends with Judge Peoples so we don't need to go back to court." When Peoples found out about the possible forgery, he contacted the district attorney, WDEF News Channel 12 reports. Stinnett is currently suspended for practicing law while suspended and not informing clients he was suspended. He will be back in court May 1 on the criminal charges.
