Being charged with the forgery of a cashier's check...

Asked over 3 years ago - Houston, TX

Picked up for this crime, then ran, before being picked up again several months later. Now, 2 years later, picked up on this same crime after evading arrest... Claims the charges were dropped 2 years ago, but why would he be braought in for it again if they were? Will it be a felony or misd? Will a plea agreement even be possible after they tried to run the first time?

    Answered . It would be a felony. The charges were apparently not dropped or there wouldn't have been a warrant to use to pick him up again. Yes, there can be a plea bargain but it will be tough to get anything but prison because he has proven that he is NOT a good candidate for probation, even if he were eligible.
