Former lawyer pleads guilty to forging documents

A Christiansburg lawyer who admitted forging legal documents and passing them off as genuine may avoid a lengthy prison sentence.

According to The Roanoke Times, a special prosecutor agreed to recommend no more than two years imprisonment in exchange for today’s seven guilty pleas from former attorney Gerard Marks.

Marks admitted to forging judges’ signatures on documents involving property easements, divorces and adoptions.

Last month, with Marks’ consent, the Virginia State Bar disciplinary board revoked his license to practice law.
