Those sentenced in Cheshire County Superior Court recently include a Swanzey man accused of forgery and other charges.

Dillon L. Amadon, 24, pleaded guilty earlier this month to forgery and burglary, both felonies, and a misdemeanor charge of theft by unauthorized taking. According to the charges, Amadon stole checks from Guyer & Son Contracting in Swanzey in March and fraudulently used one of the checks at TD Bank in Keene, for which a judge ordered him to make restitution of $1,950 to the bank. The burglary charge alleged Amadon entered an apartment on Monadnock Highway in Swanzey in February with the intent to commit theft.

In addition to the restitution, Amadon was sentenced to one year in the Cheshire County jail. He received credit for 52 days served awaiting the resolution of his case, and the remainder of the jail sentence was suspended for three years on condition of good behavior. He was put on probation for three years. An additional 12-month jail sentence was suspended for five years. Amadon was also ordered to perform 30 hours of community service and engage in substance misuse treatment.

Prosecutors dropped a charge of possession of a controlled drug and three additional counts of forgery.
