    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Obtaining Property by False Pretenses is ordinarily a Class H felony punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of 40 months unless the value of the property exceeds $100,000.00 then it is a Class C felony punishable by imprisonment for a maximum of 231 months. Her exact maximum exposure would depend on her prior record and when her earlier convictions occurred which would determine if she qualified for Habitual Felon status or would otherwise determine her prior record level for sentencing purposes. She needs an experienced criminal defense attorney. I can be reached at 919-828-5566
