Two-year sentence given for forged checks

CROSSVILLE — A Mayland area man pleaded guilty in Criminal Court in connection with two forgery cases and received a two-year prison sentence to be served after completing a probation violation sentence from General Sessions Court is served.

John Dallas Brown, 35, whose last known address was on Hwy. 70 N, was charged with two counts each of forgery and passing a forged instrument and for violating conditions of his probation from a drug paraphernalia case.

Brown pleaded guilty to one count each of forgery and passing a forged instrument and received the two-year sentence, but he will not begin serving that sentence until the 11-month and 29-day probation violation sentence is completed.

He will receive credit for 180 days already served.

Brown was accused of passing two stolen checks at the Starwood Market in Mayland in August of 2010. Total of the checks was $65.

In other pleas taken, the following took place:

•Roger Dale Floyd, 51, charged with manufacture of more than .5 grams of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, had that charge dismissed. He was also charged with felony evading arrest, stemming from the September 2010 incident, and pleaded guilty, receiving a one-year suspended sentence to be served on supervised probation. Fine and court costs were waived.

•Jesse Marvin Smallwood, 65, charged with possession of more than .5 grams of cocaine for sale, possession of more than .5 grams of cocaine for delivery and possession of cocaine with intent to deliver.

Under terms of a sentencing agreement, Smallwood pleaded guilty to sell of more than .5 grams of cocaine and was placed on supervised probation for ten years.

An informant told the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation that cocaine could be purchased from Smallwood and the resulting investigation led to the charges.

Investigators also seized $7,000, but Smallwood alleged in court that the $7,000 belongs to his wife and not himself. Ownership of the cash is still to be determined.
