A background investigation on Carina E. Comiskey, 29, revealed she submitted forged documents for a governor’s appointment as a New York State Justice Center attorney, according to police. Comiskey claimed to have passed the state bar examination, but an investigation revealed she allegedly failed the exam during each of her four attempts.

Judge Margaret Adkins arraigned Comiskey in New Scotland Town Court and released her. She is scheduled to appear in Town Court on Thursday, April 24, at 5 p.m.
Police said Comiskey graduated from Albany Law School with a Juris Doctorate.
