‘Brazen’ forgery gets man jail time

By Diana Bowley, BDN Staff

DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — A Kittery man who pleaded guilty to aggravated forgery and to having a loaded gun in his motor vehicle was among those sentenced Monday by Justice William R. Anderson in Piscataquis County Superior Court.

Anthony Bizzocchi, 29, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for aggravated forgery and was fined $500 for having a loaded gun in a motor vehicle.

Piscataquis County District Attorney R. Christopher Almy said Bizzocchi was involved in a “rather brazen event.” He told Anderson that Bizzocchi was one of two people apprehended on Nov. 12, 2007, by game wardens for game violations at night.

Bizzocchi told wardens his name was Peter Bizzocchi, which is his brother’s name, Almy said. Anthony Bizzocchi later appeared in 13th District Court on the charge and again identified himself as his brother and signed court documents using Peter Bizzocchi’s name.

Almy said Bizzocchi’s fines went unpaid and the forgery went unnoticed until the real Peter Bizzocchi went to obtain a hunting license and was told he couldn’t get one because of the loaded gun violation.

In other cases Monday, Glenn H. Waugh, 57, of West Brookfield, Mass., pleaded guilty to having a loaded gun in a motor vehicle and to unlawfully shooting or discharging a firearm and was fined $1,000 on each charge. A charge of night hunting was dismissed.

Carl W. Barry, 60, of Foxborough, Mass., pleaded guilty to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants and was fined $500. His license was suspended for 90 days.

Belinda C. Shauver, 53, of Greenville and Jacksonville, Fla., pleaded guilty to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants and was sentenced to four days in jail and fined $800. Her license also was suspended 90 days.
