BURKE-A man who was convicted Friday of passing a forged $500 check written to himself in June 2017 will serve three years probation.

Aaron Legge, 21, of Gregory, was originally charged with passing two forged checks, but the state dropped the charge of the alleged $56.11 forged check when Legge pleaded guilty to the second charge. The $500 check was passed at a Gregory bowling alley.

Both checks were reportedly stolen from the same couple, who wrote in an affidavit that they believed a family member had taken the checks and given them to Legge.

Judge Bobbi Rank gave Legge a suspended five-year prison sentence. In addition to his probation time, Legge was ordered to write a letter of apology to the family from whom the check was taken and allow court services officers access to his electronic devices and social media.

Legge was also ordered to pay a total of $1,144.47 in fines and court costs, and he must have all purchases of more than $300 approved by court services until that amount has been paid in full.
