Adam Cagle, Minot, sentenced to time served, probation for forging checks using ex-girlfriend’s closed bank account

Adam Keith Cagle, 32, Minot, was sentenced last week to a year in jail, all suspended but the 39 days he already served, and three years of supervised probation for writing forged checks using his ex-girlfriend’s closed bank account.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Cagle wrote a $180 forged check to the Guest Lodge for room rent in March and an $850 forged check to Northern Auction to pay for a used car he had bought at auction.

If he successfully completes probation, the C felonies will be reduced to A misdemeanors on his record.

North Central District Court Judge Richard Hagar also ordered Cagle to have no contact with the victim. Restitution is reserved for 90 days.
