Complex agreement results in 10-year split sentence

24 forgery, passing forged instrument charges settled

CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County man received a split sentence combining over two dozen charges into a short time in jail, followed by years of probation.

Kevin Meade Bugress, 41, whose address when last arrested was listed on POW Camp Rd., received a ten-year sentence, with six months to serve in jail (credit for 88 days already served), and the balance to be served on supervised probation.

Over the past year or so, Burgess racked up 24 counts of forgery, 24 counts of passing a forged instrument, and one count each of fraudulent us of a debit card of more than $1,000, and sale of a schedule II drug.

He had been indicted on the debit card and forgery charges and and the sale of a controlled substance charge was pending in Cumberland County General Sessions Court.

In a complex sentencing agreement, all the pending charges were combined, and through a series of consecutive and concurrent sentences, the 10-year suspended sentence was reached. Once the sentence is served, Burgess will be placed on supervised probation and will be required to start making payments toward restitution of $6,714.23.
