ELLCIOTT – A City of Jamestown man accused of defrauding a local military veteran support organization has pled guilty in the case.

The Town of Ellicott Court Clerk tells WNYNewsNow that Glenn A. French, 63, plead guilty this week to a single charge of false personation, a class B misdemeanor.







French was originally charged with criminal impersonation, theft of services and third-degree forgery in July.

Following an investigation by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, deputies said French used an alias and impersonated a veteran to receive services that he otherwise would not be entitled to.







Furthermore, they said he forged a document that was later found to be fraudulent.

The court clerk said French will serve no jail time, but rather, was ordered not to break the law for one year.













Judge Marilyn Gerace presided over the case.
