Wait, wut? 2014? So have your parents forged your name to loans that they obtained and then spent, or haven't they?
Because when you enter repayment isn't the issue. If I use my student loan money to go to Cancun my ass has committed fraud the moment I bought the damn tickets unless I have a summer class is in Cancun. The fraud with student loans happens when you spend the money obtained illegally on things the loans are not meant to be used for.... not when you fraudulently promised to repay said loans.
I really get the feeling nothing I say will convince you. But if you do go through with your "I'm not putting mom in prison" plan (though she could possibly plead down from there), I don't want to see you on TLS or ATL or the NYT complaining about how you got screwed out of being an attorney by your parents. Because you know what? You are at least 20 fucking years old. The only one potentially screwing you out of it is you. Act like a responsible adult, like your parents DIDN'T, and do the right, honest, moral, and slightly selfish thing, and turn your parents in. A few years ago when my dad tried to get me involved in a semi-shady real estate deal I turned him down because I was an adult. If he had forged my name to a real estate contract that indebted me for thousands of dollars and ruined my chances of passing C&F I would be turning him into the DA's office quicker than shit... while, at the same time, calling the best defense attorney I know to represent my dad. I'd probably also apologize to him to for turning him in. I'm not heartless, and I wouldn't want my dad to suffer unreasonably, but there is a line.
