Milton Glover, 63, was in Jones County Superior Court July 17 to face charges that stemmed from his Oct. 10, 2013, arrest for forgery in the first degree.
Assistant District Attorney Wright Barksdale told the court that Glover is in poor health and is also facing charges in Bibb and Peach counties. In addition to his probation, Glover was ordered to repay the bank $1,896, which was the amount of the check.
According to a report of the incident by Gray Police Officer Monica Senn, she was dispatched to the bank in reference to the cashing of a fraudulent check. When the officer arrived at the scene, she met with the teller involved in the transaction.
The teller said a black male came into the bank about 1 p.m. to cash a check. He identified himself as Milton Glover. She said he was well-dressed, with proper identification, and she cashed the check.
The check was on a local business, and after Glover left the bank, the teller said she started thinking that she should not have cashed the check without verifying that it was authentic.
