A Niagara Falls man charged last week with forging a nominating petition to run for the Niagara County Legislature faces another felony charge for allegedly providing false information in order to receive food stamps, according to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office.
Keith R. Lindsay, 33, has been charged with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, the Sheriff's Office said Wednesday. He is accused of providing false information about his residence in order to receive benefits under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, deputies said.
Lindsay was released on an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in Lockport City Court on Dec. 6.
He was previously charged with two felonies in connection with his petitions to run for a seat on the county legislature. His petitions to appear on the ballot were thrown out by the county Board of Elections.
