My husband has forgery, uttering and grand larceny charges. He stole checks from a women he knew and cashed them for a total of about 4000.00 for drugs. If he pays the women back and she goes to court and asks for drug rehab or a lesser sentence do you think it would make a difference in the state's desssion?

Hard to say (in my opinion) depending upon the court and office of commonwealth's attorney involved, but if this victim is willing
to testify in your husband's defense, it could be an advantage that
your husband's defense counsel should be made aware of.
