NORTH ADAMS -- A Pittsfield man has been put on probation for multiple charges after using checks and credit cards he stole from his ex-girlfriend.
Michael J. Dicenzo Jr., 33, of Hazelwood Terrace, admitted to sufficient facts in Northern Berkshire District Court on Tuesday and was found guilty on one count of uttering a false check. He was put on probation until July 11, 2014, and ordered to pay $90 to the victim and witness fund.
He has also been ordered to pay a probation fee of $65 per month beginning two months following his release from the Berkshire County House of Correction after serving a sentence for another crime.
On a second charge of larceny under $250, Dicenzo admitted to sufficient facts and was found guilty. He was put on probation until July 11, 2014, and ordered to remain drug and alcohol free with screenings and to seek counseling.
Dicenzo admitted to sufficient facts and was found guilty on three counts of forgery of a check, two counts of larceny under $250, two counts of uttering a false check, and four counts of credit card fraud under $250. He was put on probation until July 11, 2014, for each of those charges.
Two counts of uttering false writing and two counts of forgery of a document were dismissed at the request of the commonwealth.
According to the police report, Dicenzo’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his son reported to Pittsfield Police on Dec. 22, 2009, that he had stolen some of her checks and credit cards after he visited her the night before.
