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.
