Forgery One of the Greatest Advantages That Our Clients Benefit From Is Our Experience

Paulding County Forgery Defense Lawyer

Handling Forgery Cases in Cobb County, Douglas County & the Atlanta Metro Area

Forgery is defined under state law in Georgia Code §16-9-1 (2012), and it includes any act of making, altering or possessing a written instrument including checks, such as by using a false name or changing a document so as to misrepresent the identity or authority which is responsible for making the item. It includes a wide range of white collar crimes which are generally aimed at securing a financial gain or an economic advantage. There are four degrees of forgery, with different possible sentences depending on the severity of the offense.

What is the penalty for forgery?

Forgery can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances of the offense. Fourth-degree forgery is a misdemeanor, with a maximum penalty of one year in county jail, while third, second and first-degree forgery are all felonies with sentencing ranging from a minimum of one year and up to fifteen years in state prison. In addition to serving time behind bars, you would face a future of living with a criminal record, which can make it difficult or even impossible to find suitable employment.
