What Are Federal Offenses Involving Forgery?

Most cases involving forgery are considered federal offenses. Federal forgery offenses usually carry strict penalty guidelines that may not allow for probation instead of jail time and have higher minimum penalties than theft-related criminal offenses charged under California state law. At jD Law Criminal Defense Attorneys, our San Diego criminal defense attorney is licensed to practice in both state and federal courts.

This includes forgery of any type of document, including:

  • Forging a signature on a check

  • Real estate documents
  • Any legal or financial documents or statements
  • Altering a check or other document

Have You Been Accused of Committing Forgery?

Forgery is an area of theft and white collar crimes is taken very seriously. Forgery occurs when a person alters or falsifies a document in any way, including writing a false signature, with fraudulent intent. This means that when a person mistakenly fills out a document or with no intent of causing harm, he or she has not technically committed forgery. When intent is involved in criminal offenses, particularly ones involving fraud, theft, and forgery, the prosecution has the difficult task of proving the action and the intent of the defendant. With a skilled forgery defense lawyer on your side, your chances of avoiding a conviction and even avoiding formal charges being filed greatly increases.
