A Columbus man who pleaded guilty to two counts of forgery after police linked him to passing counterfeit bills last year must go back to prison after having his probation revoked in a court hearing.
Bartholomew Circuit Judge Stephen Heimann ruled earlier this month that Michael Orr, 57, of 2001 McKinley Ave., must serve the balance of an 11-year sentence in prison after results of an October drug test showed opiates and amphetamine in his system. Orr also didn’t pay some required court fees, court records show.
Orr will get credit for 200 days spent in jail over two stretches in 2012 and 2013. He also gets credit for 155 days on work release, a court ruling says.
In March, Orr pleaded guilty to two counts of forgery as Class C felonies and maintaining a common nuisance as a Class D felony.
