When one of the charges against a Stanley Hood Rd. man was read out loud in Cumberland County Criminal Court, it drew smiles across those in observance. Even the defendant smiled.

That is because the forgery charge stems from a claim that Jerrell Wayne Jackson, 31, forged a check on the Roane County Sheriff's Department's commissary account.

Jackson was also facing aggravated burglary, theft of less than $500 and vandalism charges. He pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary, forgery, theft and vandalism and received a four-year suspended sentence with one year to serve and the balance on supervised probation. Jackson is also to pay restitution.

As part of the plea agreement, Jackson is to pay $876.24 restitution to the jail in Roane County.
