Longview man heads to prison on forgery, theft charges

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Michael Jeffrey Maxey, 29, of Longview, is headed to prison after pleading guilty to theft and forgery charges in Gregg and Upshur counties.

Upshur County District Judge Lauren Parish sentenced Maxey to nine month-sentences on two forgery charges from Gilmer police. Those sentences will run concurrent with eight-year prison terms he received from Gregg County 188th District Judge David Brabham on Nov. 16, after Maxey pled guilty to forgery and theft of at least $1,500.

Prosecutors enhanced the charge, because Maxey had prior forgery convictions.

In a separate case, Parish sentenced 33-year-old Calvin Glenn Jenkins Jr., of Jenkins, to four years' prison, after he pled guilty to unlawfully possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

Parish also revoked probation for 31-year-old Aaron Lee Shaw, of Gilmer, and sentenced him to six years in prison for possession of a controlled substance.
