Man ordered to pay $4,400 in restitution in forgery case
URBANA — An Urbana man who admitted that he cashed a forged check that appeared to be a payroll check at an Urbana bank has been ordered to pay more than $4,400 in restitution.
Trevell McClendon, 21, whose last known address was in the 1300 block of North Lincoln Avenue, pleaded guilty this week in Champaign County Circuit Court to a single count of forgery, admitting that on April 26 he cashed a check at Busey Bank that appeared to have been a payroll check.
He was sentenced to two years of conditional discharge and ordered to pay $4,421 along with a co-defendant, whose case remains unresolved.
In return for McClendon's guilty plea, two other counts of forgery were dismissed and the state agreed not to file charges in another Champaign case.
Assistant State's Attorney Troy Lozar said McClendon had no prior convictions.
