Is this person facing one or two felony charges?
Well, forgery in the first degree is extremely serious felony, which carries a minimum penalty of 1 and maximum of 10 years imprisonment upon conviction.
What was the amount of money that were allegedly stolen?
the second charge also carries a penalty between 1-10 years in prison.
So, the minimum sentence that a person who is convicted of these felony crimes would receive is 1 year in prison.
So, at this time this person would need to consult and retain an experienced local criminal defense attorney and an experienced defense attorney might be able to negotiate a plea bargain, which might allow this defendant to plead to reduced charges and possibly to avoid prison time.
Does this make sense?
