HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A former Alabama A&M University administrator accused of forgery has been sentenced to 12 months, suspended after resigning as the university’s chief operating officer and executive vice president.

The sentencing comes after Kevin Rolle pleaded guilty to a forgery charge back in March.

Rolle is order to pay a $6,000 fine and be on supervised probation for 2 years. The judge allowed Rolle to leave the state, but he is required to meet with his probation officer when scheduled.

Rolle was indicted in October 2015 amid allegations that he collected $6,534.55 in moving expenses when he relocated to the Huntsville area from South Carolina upon taking the job at Alabama A&M in 2009.

Those expenses could not be verified by state examiners during a 2015 audit.
