'Enclarde, who worked in the Orleans Parish Criminal Clerk's Office from 1973 through 2010, accepted cash and things of value from an unlicensed bail bondsman in exchange for her permitting the unlicensed bondsman to use the name of another, licensed bondsman and to forge that licensed bondsman's signature on official court documents,' Boente said in a statement.

She faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
