I am in North Carolina, and a former landlord filed an eviction on me for non payment of rent. I moved out of the property after the filing date. When it was time for court, they ended up winning the case. 2 months later the same landlord filed 4 misdemeanor worthless check charges against me for the back rent. I went to court and ended up with a court appointed attorney. The attorney has tried to help clear this up outside of court. But the landlord is not willing to negotiate dropping the charges unless I pay the full amount. I don't have all the money and the attorney says I will be charged. Could I go to jail or get probation? I am a single parent and don't want to lose everything.

I did a hit and run and caused a huge accident. I hit a truck and it swerved off-road hitting a power pole. The pole felt down on his truck but that driver did not get injured.I got really scared and ran away from the scene for a few miles. I ended up calling the cops on myself telling them what happened. Furthermore, I told the cops it was my very first accident and didn't know what to do. I wasn't on drugs or alcohol or anything. One of the officer told me I will be cited for hit and run. The district attorney will charged me later.My question is what will be the chances I have to face prison? Or will I just have to pay fines and face probations?
