It depends on the value that you are alleged to have defrauded from the state. Also, it depends on whether you have any prior convictions. I would hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible and attempt to get this case settled under a civil compromise. I would love to answer any more specific questions that you have about your case. Feel free to contact my office.
