Forgery at its linguistic root means to “falsify.” It is a serious crime that involves creating, adapting or imitating something with the intent to deceive someone. Some common examples of forged items include legal documents, drivers’ license and identification cards, and contracts. It may also involve changing a legitimate document into a falsified one through alteration of text or signatures. The similar crime of counterfeiting generally involves forgery of currency, money or consumer goods. None of these accusations should be taken lightly, as if you are convicted of a federal forgery offense, you can be sent to prison for up to 20 years and can face immense fines.
