My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York State. I found a cheque worth 3400$ while I was returning back home from school(I am 25 years old and I am an international student). I kept it with me and never attempted to cash it. A few days later one of my friend came to my house and saw that cheque on my table. She got excited and said that she knows someone who can cash it. She left and came back 3 days later with another girl and asked me for the cheque. I gave it to her but she insisted me to come with them and give my ID i refused to give my ID but I went with them. They went to some cheque cash place I didnt even go inside. After 20 mins they came back and said it cannot be cashed and suddenly cops came and arrested us. They charged me and the girl who took the cheque from me with an attempt to cash a cheque they did not charge me with a felony and left us the same night at 12 after taking fingerprints. I do not have any previous criminal records. The penal code and name of crime are in the title of the post. My first hearing is on 10th of july I am very scared please give me suggestions for this.
