AUGUSTA — A former Skowhegan police sergeant and his wife were convicted today of forging a document that was presented to a Maine court.
Deane Tracy, 43, and Sarah Tracy, 45, both of Skowhegan, each were found guilty of misdemeanor forgery for adding “Paid in Full” to a bill of sale for a 1992 Mercedes-Benz. The document was presented in a small claims case in Skowhegan when the sellers, Melissa and Kenneth Curtis, claimed the Tracys never paid all $3,500 due.
A nonjury trial on the forgery charges against the Tracys began Wednesday in Kennebec County Superior Court .
Sarah Tracy, however, was on probation for a felony theft conviction, and could spend up to 25 months in prison, the suspended portion of her previous sentence.
When the forgery occurred, Sarah Tracy also was a director of School Administrative District 54 — Canaan, Cornville, Mercer, Norridgewock, Skowhegan and Smithfield.
Justice Joseph Jabar said he will scheduled a sentencing hearing shortly for both Tracys as well as a hearing on a probation violation charge against Sarah Tracy.
Both Tracys remain free on bail.
