7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud

7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud scam on criaglist, two Attorneys one said shes looking at time the other said its BS and he can fight it. I feel like we are getting different advice every time we seek information. I mean how can a Judge put someone away who is a victim herself. She had no idea the check was stolen but the guy who gave her the check is no where to be found. Do cases like this happen offten ? Do people go away for being scammed themselves ? They charged her with bank fraud, forgery, grand theft, identify fraud etc her biggest mistake was maybe being dumb for trusting this guy and not asking the right questions. I mean the check was cashed at her own bank if she knew it was stolen her own personl bank would not be her choice to fund it. I am at a loss here

2 nights ago an incident occurred involving a very possible

2 nights ago an incident occurred involving a very possible hit and run. It was a minor accident involving my car and another in a parking lot at extremely low speeds. It was nighttime and was raining a bit. I honestly do not know who is to blame in that accident, but one thing is for sure: I drove away in fear. and since that night I've been extremely anxious and distraught.Visibility out my rear windshield is already poor, so I usually make extra precautions when backing up, like using my sideview mirrors and moving very slowly. My radio wasn't on and my phone wasn't even out. But as I was backing out I was suddenly hit from behind. I saw tail lights of another vehicle so I figured another car had backed into me.I saw the car pull back into its space in my sideview mirror (unless I am mistaking this for another vehicle), and I pulled into the side of the parking aisle to wait for a bit. I had been in 2 accidents before (one at fault) and I stopped for both to give aid and exchange information. But unfortunately, this night irrational fear kicked in and I drove away. and this still doesn't make sense to me why I did that because I thought the other driver was at fault. I wanted with EVERY OUNCE of my body to stay there and exchange info and check on the other car, but for some reason I did not even tho the damage would have likely been extremely minimal. and I immediately had immense regret as I was driving away.Since that night I have not been contacted at all. I imagine something might arrive in the mail because it occurred over the weekend. but I have not checked that yet since it the car is registered to me but address is a PO BOX at my parents' work. No phone calls yet either. I am in immense fear that police will eventually find me or get in contact with me and I will be cited/arrested. Of course I'd much rather take a smaller citation and reparations for the other vehicle over a high fine and jail time, but I honestly don't know what to do right now.It was a grocery store parking lot at night, so there had to have been at least 1 or 2 witnesses that may have seen what happened. and there may have been security camera footage. My car is fairly aged and easy to distinguish with some stickers on the rear. So maybe it's only a matter of time before I am located...I have a pretty clean history. Just a few parking violations for street sweeping, those 2 accidents (one at fault) mentioned above, and an infraction for skateboarding. I don't know if any of that will help in any kind of leniency. Of course this incident was not the result of any intention of being malicious or intending to cause harm or damage. I still don't know who was at fault in that accident, but me driving away obviously doesn't help me any way and actually just hurts me more.My main 2 concerns is the following:1. Should I turn myself in regardless if the other driver reported this or not? (I feel the only reason they wouldn't is because they know they were at-fault, or because the damage was rather minor) and what likely penalties with I face at this point?Am I just worsening the situation by not doing anything, hoping I wont be found or that the other driver did not report the incident?2. If I am contacted by the police or anyone else, what do I do? would pleading the 5th amendment and waiting to speak worsen the situation by showing them I am guilty of something?I know regardless of what happens, my future is probably ruined...
