Five persons with pending criminal charges entered guilty pleas on Tuesday in Carbon County court.
Judge Steven R. Serfass accepted the pleas from the following:
Harry McLaughlin, 27, of Lansford, pleaded to one count each of criminal trespass, theft and forgery. The trespass and forgery counts are felony threes.
He was charged for taking a checkbook from the home of Regina Kociolek, of Lansford, and writing one out to himself and forging her name on it.
McLaughlin was a neighbor of the victim at the time of the incident.
