Legal Question

Asked on: 6/18/13, 12:38 am

I am being charged with Grand Theft and Forgery in Los Angeles. I buy and sell cars occasionally and what happened was I bought a car from someone and flipped it to someone else without putting it in my name. My mistake is that I forged a bill of sale in the titleholders name. So even though I didn't actually steal anything they're charging me with Grand Theft. The forgery part was just to help the new owner be able to register the car so there was no intent to pretend to be the actual titleholder. Anyway they want to stick me with two years state prison as I do have a prior fraud convention from 2005. I'm going to find out what deal they're going to offer me and I'll have to decide to fight this in a jury trial or take some kind of deal which probably won't be something I'll like. So is there a decent chance of being found "Not Guilty"??
