New York man, Robert Berger, tried to fake his death certificate to avoid a prison sentence of up to four years. According to the huffpost.com Robert was charged with of possession of a stolen Lexus and attempted grand larceny of a truck were the reasons behind his initial arrest. One can a assume he thought the only way out if to fake my death! The crazy part is, the death certificate would have passed, but according to the New Jersey Department of Health, Vital Statistics and Registry, Registry was spelled “Regsitry,” prosecutors said. There were also inconsistencies in the font type and size that raised suspicions, they said.
It was a typo that flagged the Department of Health and this will possibly add to his list of charges and increased his jail time.
