Forgery Crimes Defense
Under Colorado law, forgery is charged when someone makes, uses, or possesses documents or instruments that have been falsified in some manner. Examples include an altered school transcript or providing a fake social security number on an application. A conviction for felony forgery can carry up to 3 years in prison, 2 years of mandatory parole, and up to a $100,000 fine.
Colorado will charge forgery as either a felony or misdemeanor based primarily on the type of document or instrument involved, and whether you actually used the document or instrument. At Weber Law, our attorneys know that the key element in a forgery case is whether you had the intent to defraud someone. This can often be difficult for the prosecutor to prove. Forgery is recognized as a crime of dishonesty, so it is very important to have a good attorney on your side. If a conviction goes on your criminal record, it can seriously impact your ability to gain meaningful employment. If you or someone you know has been accused of forgery or any related offense involving fraud, call Weber Law today and let’s get started on winning your case. Some of the defenses we may explore at Weber Law include:
-You did not have the intent to defraud anyone.
-You were unaware that you possessed a forged instrument.
-The thing you possessed does not fit the definition of a forged instrument or document under Colorado law.
