I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.

Here's the section of the Penal law under which you are charged. It is typically a misdemeanor but can be a state jail felony, if the document is a will or a deed. As a misdemeanor it would have a maximum possible incarceratory sentence of a year and/or a fine of up to $4K. As a state jail felony, the maximum possible penalty would be two years in jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Probation would be possible for either the misdemeanor or the felony.
