Cape Girardeau doctor appears in court on fraud charges

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

There has been a change of plea from the Cape Girardeau doctor charged with five fraud-related federal charges.

Dr. Byron Glenn, 57, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a single count related to cashing a fake money order valued under $1,000.

The judge ordered Glenn to be released on his own recognizance. He's been in federal custody since his arrest.

Glenn had faced a five-count indictment with three felony counts of passing fictious instrument with intent to defraud, one felony count of making a fictious instrument with intent to defraud and one felony count of mail fraud.

According to court documents, Glenn is accused of trying get get money by presenting a false money order under $1,000 to First State Community Bank. US Attorney Morely Swingle charges Glenn did so with "willful blindness to the high probability that he was not really entitled to take the money from the US Treasury."

Glenn is scheduled to be back in court for sentencing in November.
