Forgery | ARS §13-2002

Watch this video of David Michael Cantor talk about Forgery Charges in Arizona.


Forgery is a class four felony that occurs when a person either knowingly completes or alters a written instrument (usually a check), knowingly possesses a forged instrument, or knowingly offers or presents a forged instrument. A forged instrument can have a proper signature, but a forged amount or forged material information contained within the document.

If a person possesses five or more forged instruments, there is a statutory inference that the instruments were possessed with the intent to defraud.
