On August 15, 2008 my husband brought me a cashier's check to pay for my back rent to avoid eviction. He said it was $100 short, so I went and got a money order for $98 to put with the check. The check was for $6704. This was for 2 months delinquent and 1 month in advance. Everything was fine until the Apt. Mgr. called 2 weeks later to say that the cashier's check was counterfeit. I was totally shocked! I called my husband and asked him where did he get the check. Anyway, 1 month later the detectives came and arrested both of us. Now I'm going to trial for something I didn't do. What makes my case worse is that in 2002 I had a stupid boyfriend that involved me in his forgery scheme and got me arrested, so I have a prior for the same type of crime. It looks bad. The judge offered me 2 years w/half in prison. I declined and am taking it to trial. My husband is going to testify the fact that he gave me the check and I had no prior knowledge of it being counterfeit (I didn't).

I always have to get up so early in the morning."A lie, I know. But she...
