Friend wrote a $11,000 check to a check cashing place that was no good. We know it’s a felony & are wanting to know the possible jail time for it. The owner is saying he is going to press charges
More info needed- does your friend have prior criminal convictions for anything at all? (other than garden-variety speeding tickets) Have they received a PJC for any criminal conviction? In NC, sentencing is based both on the charge AND person’s prior criminal history. Also don’t know what they will be charged with- could be forgery, uttering, obtaining money by false pretense etc. Court in Graham NC is best approached with a good criminal defense attorney - especially since in a matter of months we’ll be getting our new DA and don’t know what policies he’ll bring or changes he’ll make to the office. He’s really great; just things change when officeholders do.
