If you create fake documents, change existing documents or sign someone else’s name to something, without authorization and intending to defraud them, you may face forgery charges.
This is considered even more serious if you sign a false name to a ticket, summons, warrant or bail document or if you change the figures on a check or write a check out belonging to another person.
If you are caught passing or attempting to pass a forged check or document, additional charges may arise as well.
If convicted of a forgery charge, you may be facing a class 4 felony, which carries with it up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
