Fighting State or Federal Forgery Charges
Forgery is defined as the crime of making a fake document, changing an existing document, or making a signature without authorization. Some of the documents that can be the object of forgery include contracts, identification cards, and legal certificates. 18 U.S.C. § 471 provides punishment for whoever, with intent to defraud, falsely makes, forges counterfeits, or alters any obligation or other security of the United States. Furthermore, sections 472 and 473 provides similar punishment for those who utter or deal in forged or counterfeit obligations or other security of the United States. If convicted of forgery you may be facing large fines and/or imprisonment of up to twenty years.
