I forged my brother's name on a multitude of checks (they were written to the both of us) over the period of 2011 - 2013. He is now trying to have me arrested. Is that possible after this amount of time?

HelloThank you. That is going to be a felony and In SC - there is no statute of limitations for felony of this nature. That means that the prosecution can bring the charges at any time after the discovery of the crime.
Expert:  Samuel II replied 2 years ago.
Therefore, if he and/or the bank files the criminal reports, you could be arrested OR you could have a summons issued to appear at a hearing. It depends on the District Attorney and how they want to handle itPlease note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please let me know here. Otherwise, I would appreciate a Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time.​Thank you
