Trial set for ex-Greene County major

A federal jury trial for the former Greene County Sheriff’s Office major charged with the illegal purchase and possession of a machine gun has been scheduled for December 8, according to court records.

A seven-count indictment filed against Eric A. Spicer, 44, alleges he forged Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer’s name on documents he provided to a firearms dealer in New York in 2009.

Agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives seized the weapon from Spicer’s home in March.
