Contact a Utah White Collar Crime Attorney
If you gave permission for your adult child, your spouse or your employee to sign your name on receipts or credit cards and that person did — or if you sign after someone else gave you permission — this is not normally considered forgery.
If, on the other hand, you are accused of any of the following actions without the appropriate person’s permission, you may be guilty of forgery:
- Writing a bogus check using a check belonging to someone else, signing a false signature of that person on the check
- Committing credit card fraud with someone else’s credit card without his or her permission — perhaps falsely confirming the person’s identity by citing the security number on the back of the card
- Misappropriation of funds at your place of work or involving funds that you had access to, belonging to a nonprofit organization, by way of a fake signature in someone else’s name on a check, on a ledger or at the bank
Regardless of the circumstances, the charges or your alleged guilt or innocence, your constitutional rights are defensible just as they are with any criminal charges, such as murder or robbery. Perhaps the alleged forgery was, in fact, the result of a misunderstanding — or a result of a disorder such as a gambling addiction. Perhaps you have been framed by someone else who actually committed the wrongdoing.
