Colorado Springs Forgery Attorney

Have You Been Accused of Forgery in Colorado?

Forgery is the act of altering a written document. Most commonly, forgery is thought of as someone signing another individual's name to a document and attempting to pass the signature off as authentic. Forgery is a serious crime that can result in severe punishments if convicted. Falsifying a document that leads to financial gain is illegal and can lead to charges. In many cases, people don't realize they are committing forgery, or are unaware of the consequences. Signing a spouse's name to a document, even with his or her permission, can lead to forgery charges, or at the very least can result in a business deal falling through.

About Colorado Forgery Laws

Forgery is a white collar crime. Many white collar crimes are charged as federal crimes, which are much more serious and punishable in a severe way. Whether or not your forgery charges are tried as a federal crime or a state crime depends upon the circumstances of your case. If your forgery charges affected people in more than one state, you will likely be facing federal charges.

You can be charged for forgery for documents such as:

  • Money
  • Stamps
  • Government securities
  • Identification documents
  • Stocks or bonds
  • Lottery tickets
  • Legal documents
  • Public records

Forgery charges are classified in three degrees, as well as misdemeanor or felony. If you are convicted of misdemeanor forgery charges, you may be facing a minimum of one year in jail. Felony charges can result in several years in federal prison. Other penalties include paying restitution to the victims, community service, probation, and monetary fines.
