Man pleads to forgery-related charges at Berry Hill Resort

Julius Lee Wilson Jr., a 51-year-old resident of Prescott, Arizona, pleaded guilty Thursday in Halifax County Circuit Court to three charges in relation to forgery, uttering and obtaining money under false pretenses from the former Founder’s College at Berry Hill Resort. Wilson was originally indicted for 24 counts of forgery, 24 counts of uttering and 24 counts of obtaining money under false pretenses, with all forging charges merged into one count, all uttering charges merged into one count, and all false pretense charges merged into one count, with the remainder nol prossed, according to the agreement.

The plea agreement calls for Wilson to be sentenced to two years in prison for each of the three charges, with all time suspended, conditioned on Wilson’s payment of $45,066.69 restitution to Berry Hill Resort in minimum monthly payments of $750.

The offenses for which Wilson was convicted occurred in a period from Sept. 22, 2008 to Feb. 28, 2009, and Wilson was arrested in connection with the offenses Nov. 18, 2009, according to court records.
