KELO Court Gavel

A Whitewood man who committed identity theft and forgery at several businesses has been sentenced to serve three years in prison and ordered to pay a total of nearly $5,000 in restitution.
Twenty-two-year-old David Baer was accused of passing bad checks and making charges on stolen credit cards last year. He initially faced 21 counts of forgery and 14 counts of identity theft.
He pleaded guilty in May to a total of six counts and a failure-to-appear charge, and prosecutors dismissed the other counts.
