                Michael M. Broadnax, 45, of Carbondale, IL, who was charged in Jackson County Circuit Court with Forgery, plead guilty pursuant to a plea agreement and was sentenced to serve 4 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.  The defendant will serve a one year period of Mandatory Supervised Release upon his release from the Department of Corrections.
