How much trouble can you get in for commiting forgery?

31 counts

Answers:
In Pennsylvania, there are different gradations of forgery depending on what is forged. Forgery is a felony of the second degree if the writing is or purports to be part of an issue of money, securities, postage or revenue stamps, or other instruments issued by the government, or part of an issue of stock, bonds or other instruments representing interests in or claims against any property or enterprise. Forgery is a felony of the third degree if the writing is or purports to be a will, deed, contract, release, commercial instrument, or other document evidencing, creating, transferring, altering, terminating, or otherwise affecting legal relations. Otherwise forgery is a misdemeanor of the first degree.

In the case of a felony of the first degree, the sentence is not more than 10 years. In the case of a felony of the second degree, the sentence is not more than 7 years. In the case of a misdemeanor of the first degree, the sentence is not more than 5 years.

If there are 31 counts, that is a potentially long jail time. Just do the math. However, with a good defense lawyer working out a plea bargain with the defendant, the sentence would be much less.
Quite a bit unless you have an air tight defense.
wow. a lot
you can go to prison
Even with a lawyer and plea bargaining and no priors, with 31 counts, you are looking at felony charges and at least 5 years in most states.
