You need to consult with a criminal defense attorney in your area ASAP for advice and direction. If you had her permission then you had no intent to deceive/commit a crime. But she can say you did not and signed without her knowledge, consent nor authority. You can dispute this with third party fact witnesses. Forgery is a crime in all states. Get legal counsel NOW!
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
I would hire an attorney. If they told you to sign the checks and you have witnesses, you should be okay. I would expect they will say they did not approve a certain check which you signed. Call me in Huntsville if you need help. 256-534-3435
