CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - At about 9 a.m., Mayor Pro Tem of Port Wentworth, Vincent Hogan, walked into the Chatham County jail and turned himself in, according to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office. 

Hogan was booked on false swearing charges stemming from allegations that he falsified election documents. He was sentenced in 1999 for exchanging counterfeit cash.

A Charleston court convicted him 12 years ago on two counts of forgery involving counterfeit money. His probation expired five years ago. Hogan said he thought he was clear to run for political office. 

Georgia law says individuals have to wait 10 years from the end of their sentence. A Chatham County grand jury indicted Hogan on charges he lied when he didn't note the conviction on his application to run for Port Wentworth City Council.
