A former secretary to Culpeper's police chief is facing up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to forgery.

Bethany Parr Sullivan also faces a $100,000 fine. She's scheduled to be sentenced June third.

The Culpeper Star-Exponent reports that the 56-year-old Orange resident pleaded guilty Wednesday to one felony forgery charge in Culpeper County Circuit Court.

She was charged with altering the results of a police department applicant's entrance exam in May 2010.

Sullivan is the mother of Daniel Harmon-Wright, who was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in January. Police say he fatally shot an unarmed woman in 2012 while serving as a Culpeper police officer.
