I pled guilty to "offering a false instrument for filing." I had brought a receipt to the DMV for a fine I had paid but saw it had two different dates on it. I asked the DMV to verify it to see which date accurate so it would correctly be reflected on my records. (I had a suspended license charge that I was disputing, claiming that my license WAS valid at the time I was driving). The DMV did so and 30 days later agreed that my fine had been paid timely. The D.A. was furious and insisted that the receipt I'd brought in was "fake". My lawyer told me that if I didn't plead guilty to "offering a false instrument" then I could face up to 14 years if I lost at trial. Naive, I pled guilty and was sentenced to 1-3 years. I have since served my time and filed a motion to appeal. Thoughts?
