NEWPORT, Ky. - A Fort Thomas woman who admitted forging signatures on a petition filed in the Shayna Hubers murder case was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in jail, according to Fort Thomas Matters.

Brittany Young, who pleaded guilty last month, also was sentenced to 150 days home detention and five years of probation.

Young, 32, was charged with 28 counts of forgery after prosecutors said she forged signatures on a petition asking the Campbell County Circuit Court to grant a change of venue in Hubers' trial. On the Kentucky Secretary of State filings, Young is listed as secretary of Northern Kentucky Investigative Services, located in Taylor Mill. 

Hubers’ attorneys withdrew the petition in light of the wrongdoing and claimed they had nothing to do with forgery.  

Hubers was convicted of murder in the 2012 shooting death of her boyfriend Ryan Poston. but the conviction was overturned this year when it was discovered that one of the jurors was a convicted felon.

Hubers' new trial is set to start Jan. 16.
