If he has not pressed charges, you will probably be okay. You indicated that you were doing him a favor by helping him sign up for school. He is confused right now because he thinks you were filing taxes using his information. You signed his name to obtain the transcript to help with the enrollment process. Of course, signing someone else's name without their permission is never a good idea, but in this case, you may have a defense. Signing his name without his permission is a crime of uttering forgery in Mississippi under Miss. Code 97-21-59. This code section states that anyone who is convicted of having uttered or published as true, and with intent to defraud, any forged, altered, or counterfeit instrument, or any counterfeit gold or silver coin, the forgery, altering, or counterfeiting of which is declared by the provisions of this chapter to be an offense, knowing such instrument or coin to be forged, altered, or counterfeited, shall suffer the punishment herein provided for forgery. Notice the words "intent to defraud". If that was not your intent, you may have a valid defense if he presses charges. In the meantime, you may want to try to talk to him and explain to him what your intentions were and that you were only trying to help him. I hope this helps.
