Forgery is typically considered a white collar crime and can be prosecuted either in federal or state court. In the state of Georgia, forgery involves altering, possessing or making any writing in a false name or in the name of another without authorization and carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years. Federal penalties vary depending on the type of forgery charge.
If you’re currently being investigated for forgery in state or federal court, it’s imperative that you secure the services of experienced criminal defense attorneys in order to ensure that your rights and interests are protected throughout the process and to obtain the best possible outcome in your case. Forgery convictions depend upon proof of criminal intent and the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. Accordingly, a Georgia forgery lawyer who has a thorough working knowledge of the federal and state forgery laws can make all the difference in your case.
