Forgery Laws in New Hampshire
NH forgery cases are serious business. You very well may be facing a felony depending on which section of the statute you are charged. Thus, not only are you facing a potential prison sentence if convicted, you are also facing the stigma and collateral ramifications of a felony conviction if found guilty.
Often times the forgery cases that cross our desks involve one of the following scenarios: Thinking that Grandma wants you to be wealthy, you steal a check from grandma's checkbook, fill it in and cash it at the local bank. Grandma finds the check missing, calls the bank; the bank pulls the check and the corresponding video of you cashing it and whallah, a felony. Or, a buddy says "do me a favor, go into the bank and cash this check" and, low and behold, the check was a forgery.
Key issues in a forgery case are whether you had a purpose to defraud or knowledge that you were facilitating a fraud to be committed by another. You can see that, in the second example above, the person cashing the check very well might not have knowledge that he was facilitating a fraud on his friend's behalf. Thus, it's important to have aggressive experienced lawyers fighting such an allegation.
Attorneys Justin Shepherd and Mark Osborne handle tons of forgery cases every year. Don't hesitate, call today for your free consultation.
