What are the penalties for forgery in the third degree in the state of Georgia?

Asked about 1 year ago - Atlanta, GA

Received a check in the mail that stated Navy Federal with Credit Union. I honestly thought that the check was legit. The check amount was over 6000.

    Answered . Funny thing is you never mentioned who the check was payable to....? Penalties include jail time and restitution and a criminal record, not to mention shame and embarrassment.
