Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with a Forgery crime?
Forgery is a crime consisting of making, altering, or using any falsified written document or item, such as badges, seals, or credit cards, with the purpose of defrauding another person. Signing another person’s name on a check or changing the amount written on a check without permission are common types of forgery.
Depending on the amount that was illegally obtained by forgery, those convicted could spend years behind bars and could be fined thousands of dollars. You need a steady hand at the wheel when you are facing serious criminal charges in Texas. As a seasoned Houston criminal defense attorney, I can provide trusted counsel and representation.
How does Texas punish forgery?
Forgery is a crime that can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances surrounding the crime. Your charge may even depend on whether or not the alleged victim was an elderly or incapacitated person.
Penalties for a forgery conviction can include:
- Forging a will, deed, or checks: 18 months to 2 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines.
- Forging paper money, postage, or bonds: 2 to 10 years in jail and $10,000 in fines.
- Forging any other instrument: Up to 1 year in jail and up to $4,000 in fines.
The charge is increased to the next highest category if the alleged victim is an elderly person. Your attorney can help you understand the nature of your charges as well how to best proceed with your defense.
