Wrong address check case underway

January 30, 2006

Albany -- An Albany man is on trial for cashing a city check made out to the City Attorney, but mailed to him by mistake.

Nathaniel Davis is charged with three counts theft. Davis cashed a check for three thousand dollars from the city of Albany in June.

The check was meant for City Attorney Nathan Davis, but was mailed to Nathaniel Davis' address.

Davis said the check had his name on it and was mailed to his home, so it's not his fault he that cashed it.

Prosecutors told jurors it was a simple matter of Davis taking something not meant for him.

Davis could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
