Woman charged with forgery, perjury

LAS VEGAS (AP)

A Las Vegas woman has been accused of forging a marriage certificate so she could keep her racecar-driving boyfriend's possessions after he died three years ago when his Porsche veered off a mountain road in northern Nevada.

TRAGIC SPORTS DEATHS

Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

Allison Lear was arrested on outstanding warrants May 25 at the Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM Grand. She faces charges of forgery and perjury in what family members characterize as a callous attempt at gold-digging from Alexander Djordjevic, who died at age 37.

''I wouldn't say there was a big love there,'' Slobodan Djordjevic, Alexander Djordjevic's father, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/12TAlIN). ''I think she was just looking for material things.''

Calls to a Las Vegas-area phone number listed for ''A Lear'' went unanswered Friday.

In 2009, Lear posted a profile on a match-making website that seeks to pair millionaires with companions. Family members said she and Djordjevic had been dating for several months when his silver Porsche careened off a mountain highway on June 26, 2010, during the Speed by Spectre 341 Challenge race near Virginia City.

Later, in court, Lear showed a marriage certificate indicating she and Djordjevic had married just five days before his death at her parents' home in Las Vegas. Relatives - including Lear's father - question whether such a wedding ever happened.

According to probate court documents, John Lear told attorneys he ''would have known if his daughter had been married at 4 a.m. on June 21, 2010, in his home.''


Police cite two problems with the document. The Idaho minister who supposedly performed the ceremony never applied for a temporary permit to conduct a Nevada wedding, officials said. He told officers he'd been asked to sign a back-dated marriage certificate after he learned of Djordjevic's death, but refused.

Also, police have been unable to find the witness listed on the certificate.

Lear has said she was unclear about the legal procedure for a marriage, court documents said.

Lear has worked as a Las Vegas Township constable's deputy since fall 2010, but felony arrest warrants filed against her Dec. 17 didn't show up on background checks performed as recently as March, constable officials said. She submitted her resignation Tuesday, according to constable spokesman Lou Toomin.

Unsettled questions about the marriage have amplified the heartache for Djordjevic's family at a time when they were mourning his sudden death.

''Losing him was hard,'' Djordjevic's father said. ''But what happened after was very, very hard.''

As his widow, Lear prevented Djordjevic's parents from seeing his body at the Washoe County coroner's office, according to the Review-Journal. Three months and a court battle later, they were finally allowed to bury him, the newspaper reported.

She also held onto his possessions, including two sports cars and a gun collection. Court documents said his estate was valued between $100,000 and $200,000.
