I have been charged with 2nd degree forgery, grand larceny

Customer Question

I have been charged with 2nd degree forgery, grand larceny and attempted falsifying business . I gave my written statement during my termination and cooperated with the police. I will hopefully have a public defender. I know this is serious, but what is my best case scenario

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I am a New York criminal defense lawyer.

Probation and restitution is probably your best case scenario on a plea bargain, as the court is going to want you monitored to ensure that your employer is compensated. It's possible, however, depending upon the amount of money involved, that the DA's office would consider a reduction and you could get misdemeanor rather than felony probation.
