My girl friend forged checks from a lady and put it in my account. she had access to the bank account and removed the cash next days after deposited several forged checks. now I have been accused of forgery even though I have never forged any check in my life,
You have a complete defense, unless the State can prove you knew about your girlfriend's scheme. My recommendation is that you hire a Knoxville attorney to represent you.
A lot of this will depend on what you knew or not. If you had knowledge of it, that will be a much tougher case, but do not admit on this site or any other if you did in fact of such knowledge.
This will likely also be a strain on your relationship. Hopefully your girlfriend won't blame you.
I would hire a competent criminal defense attorney immediately! A lot goes into the defense of one of these cases and you need to be prepared for the possible pitfalls. Ultimately, it sounds as though you have a defense and you need someone to help craft it to minimize (or eliminate) the damage.
Good luck to you.
