The Erie County District Attorney’s office has charged a West Seneca couple with trying to use a fake vaccination card to get into a Buffalo Bills game.
According to News10NBC, the DA’s office says this was the first prosecution under the ‘Truth in Vaccination’ law, which was signed by Governor Kathy Hochul in December.
Michael Naab, 34, and Amber Naab, 37, are accused of using fake vaccine record cards at Highmark Stadium on January 15.
They’ve been charged with one felony count of criminal possession of a forged instrument.
They were arraigned earlier this week in Orchard Park Town Court.
Erie County District Attorney John Flynn indicated he does not intend to seek the maximum sentence.
