I was recently arrested and charged with 2nd degree forgery (2 counts, I believe). About 4-5 yrs ago I refinanced mine and my husbands home in order to pay off family debt. I DID NOT personally gain a dime as I still live pay check to pay check. I also did not do this with the intent to defraud my husband. I was simply trying to keep our bills paid as we were living way beyond our means. I know what I did was wrong and I will never deny that. I wish I had never done it. But having said that, I do not feel that I deserve to go to jail (as most probably feel, I am sure). I have a small child still living at home and have worked for a local school district for the past 12 yrs. All in one day I was arrested, posted bail and suspended (with pay) from my job pending further investigation. After researching I have found that I am in serious trouble. From what I have read that 3 yrs (in Arkansas) is the minimum I can receive. Can someone please help me. I am freaking out and cant get a moments peace.I am scared that I have lost my only source of income for good and that I will actually go to jail for any period of time. What is the probability of what I will actually be convicted of and what is the probability of my sentence will actually be?
