    We know Larry’s sister, nice lady but she can’t control the decisions he makes, everyone makes mistakes except Jesus, remember that. Bands will make her dance.

  2. John Anthony Jones says:

    Notice that the article says “fraudulent checks“ – plural. It is most likely a felony.

    But here in Wayne County it is very possible that the defendant may get only a warning.

  3. Aaliyah says:

    So cashing a fake check is a felony???
