Louisville man pleads not guilty in court to 2011 forgery and theft case charges PDF Print E-mail


A not guilty plea was entered by Brandon Terrance Holman on Wednesday, June 27, in Scott Circuit Court on charges filed against him in an October, 2011, criminal case.

Holman was among three men charged with cashing forged checks at New Washington State Bank in Scottsburg on the account of a Henryville business. The trio was arrested last October by a Sellersburg police officer after he was called to the bank's Sellersburg location. Two of the men had cashed similar checks at that bank as well. Holman was found to be in possession of a similar check made out to him.

The check Holman cashed at the Scottsburg bank totaled $2,754.88. He and his companions reportedly all admitted cashing the checks in Scottsburg, although they said they had no idea what city it was where they did it.

The business owner in Henryville told Indiana State Police Trooper Mark G. Levesque he had not authorized any of the checks cashed by the three men.

Holman, 21, of Louisville, Ky., was transported from the Clark County Jail on June 26 to attend his initial court hearing on the Scott County charges of forgery and theft. Forgery is a Class C felony, with the theft charge a Class D felony. His case was assigned to a public defender, and his trial date is August 27. Bail was fixed at $20,000 corporate surety/full cash.

Following the hearing in Scottsburg, Holman was returned to the Clark County facility. He is being held there on other criminal charges.
