Ex-lawyer will go to jail for forging judges’ signatures

Former Christiansburg lawyer Gerard Marks has agreed to serve 11 months in jail for forging official documents to make clients think he had done legal work for them.

The agreement was worked out just before a scheduled sentencing hearing, according to The Roanoke Times.  An investigation showed Marks had forged the signatures of Circuit Judges Bobby Turk and Ray Grubbs on divorce decrees, adoption orders and other documents.

To date, Marks has offered no public explanation of his actions.  He surrendered his law license in August.
