Former political candidate Kristopher Gore was given five years on probation and ordered to pay restitution after pleading guilty to worthless check, forgery and identity theft charges.
Gore was a candidate for 43rd District State Representative when he was arrested for passing worthless checks for campaign signs and a fundraising dinner. Authorities said he also used stolen information from another person to get credit for the purchase of a vehicle.
In addition to the probation, Gore must pay $875 in restitution and perform 40 hours of community service work.
