Criminal Charges for Forgery

Forgery charges allege that you did one of the following with the intent to defraud someone:

  • You altered a document that didn’t belong to you, and you didn’t have the owner’s permission to do so.
  • You created, authenticated, transferred or issued a document so that it looks like someone else took the action, but that person never actually authorized such an action. The person may be real or fictitious.
  • You “uttered” (offered for use) or “offered an instrument” as the real thing, while knowing that it was forged.
  • You created or transferred any writing to look like a copy of an original, but no original exists.

Any act of making, altering, using or possessing a false writing so that you can commit a fraud could result in forgery charges. Examples include:

  • Signing a check with someone’s else’s signature
  • Falsifying academic records
  • Counterfeiting currency
  • Using a fake ID
  • Using false documents to apply for a credit card

Passports, birth certificates, stocks and bonds, prescriptions and titles are other items that are often involved in forgery cases.
