  1. There are several different ways to violate this code section, so which one your boyfriend violated depends on the police reports. Essentially, it's possession of a forged document (typically a check) with intent to pass it.

    Whether he gets jail time or not depends on the facts of the case, his record and the judge/court/DA.
