A local man who was convicted of fraud last year for leasing land that he did not own or have control over for $9,000 was convicted last month of forgery by a Jefferson Superior Court jury and sentenced last week by Judge Blaine Goode.

Harve Hensley, 44, who has resided in Deputy, Indiana, most of his life but has also listed addresses in Columbus and Terre Haute, was found guilty by a six-person Superior Court jury on Jan. 19 on an amended charge of forgery with intent to defraud, a Level 6 felony.
