I have been charged...

I have been charged with workers compensation fraud , I did fill out n incident report stating I fell , which I didn't. I went to the hospital [ I am currently paying the bill ] but I went back to work the next day. I recieved no money. My charge is a felony and I am a nurse. In order to renew my license I have to state I have been charged with a felony. I have never been in trouble before and I am extremely frightened of losing my career.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

The charge is in Pennsylvania but I live in New York. I stated on an incident report that I fell at work , when in fact I didn't , I only wanted to go home,.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of

I have had a preliminary hearing I am supposed to go to court tomorrow. They have offered me ARD program due to the fact I have never been in trouble. Yes I did say I didn't fall so I have admitted guilt. But now my career and livelyhood are at risk. I am scared to death. This is how they got information from me , I do not know the law so I just told them.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
