MASON CITY, Iowa – Forgery lands a teenager probation.

Marcus Laurence Xavier Meyer, 19 of Mason City, entered an Alford plea to one count of felony forgery. Police say he presented a stolen check to a Mason City bank. An Alford plea means Meyer does not admit guilt but concedes he could be convicted at trial and will accept sentencing.

On Monday, he was given five years of supervised probation and a $750 civil penalty. Meyer must also pay restitution to his victim.
