Federal Forgery

Forgery charges are typically brought at the state level, but when they fall under federal jurisdiction, you better believe they are serious charges that carry stiff penalties. Conaway & Strickler, P.C., should be your law firm of choice if you’re facing Georgia forgery charges.

Forgery is closely related to fraud and counterfeiting. One of the most common types of forgery is falsely signing someone’s name on a check, but forgery can apply to other documents such as mortgages, securities and bonds as well as identity theft documents such as passports and Social Security cards. Forgery almost always accompanies intent to deceive or profit in some way.

Forgery is prosecuted by federal prosecutors when it involves a federal government institution or agency, or when the case has multistate implications. Federal forgery is considered a felony, and a conviction carries both hefty fines and prison time along with a permanent criminal record.
