What can I expect on a second offense felony forgery and felony identity theft?

Asked 11 months ago - Lexington, KY

I was probated on a felony forgery and willingly went through treatment. I relapsed and committed two more felony forgeries and identity thefts. I know I am going to do some time and have cleaned myself up again from a Heroin Addiction through A.A. and N.A. The program director of the drug rehab center I completed, The Hope Center, wants me to come back and I want to go back. Do I have a chance of serving a little time and being released? Or should I prepare for a long prison stint. I have no violent charges and no drug charges as well. I'm just trying to be prepared for when I turn myself in.

Restitution may also be an issue with respect to length of incarceration. Find a criminal defense lawyer in your area as soon as possible.
