A New Hampshire woman accused of drug possession and stalking brazenly pretended to be a prosecutor and dropped her own charges, according to police.

Lisa Landon, 33, allegedly used the court system’s electronic system late last year to file documents that would drop charges in three separate cases, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported Tuesday.

A state forensic examiner, who was scheduled to interview Landon, noticed in the system that the charges had been dropped and raised questions up the food chain.

“It quickly became evident to the State that the document, as well as other documents in the file, had been filed fraudulently,” Superior Court Judge David Anderson wrote in a ruling, according to the Union Leader.

Lisa Landon was charged with false personation and falsifying physical evidence.

Landon also allegedly falsified documents to waive filing fees in a lawsuit she had filed and to halt guardianship proceedings for her child.

It’s unclear how Landon was able to gain access to the system.

Landon has been charged with one charge of false personation and six charges of falsifying physical evidence, as well as the already standing charges she tried to dismiss.
