Raymond Zachry’s widow, Darlene Miller Zachry a/k/a/ Zachery forged his will soon after his death on September 25, 2007. It has taken four years and 11 months for a sentencing for the 51 charges of forgery, perjury, conspiracy and more. but the DA let the widow Zachry/Zachery plea to only one charge of perjury, a felony of the third degree bearing up to seven years in jail.
The court further allowed an “open guilty plea” for the felony charge and a possible sentence of probation or jail for 9 months. The “open guilty” plea supposedly means the court is not bound to an agreement on a sentence.
Our nearly five-year history of the judicial selective prosecution in Pennsylvania makes the probability that the four will walk greater than facing a sentence.
There are three co-conspirators in the case, they are scheduled for another pre-sentence conference in court on September 17, 2012 in Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas
