Forgery

     Forgery, as defined in § 943.38(1) of the Criminal Code of Wisconsin, is committed by one who with intent to defraud falsely makes or alters a writing or object whereby legal rights or obligations are created or transferred so that it purports to have been made (by another) (at another time) (with different provisions) (by authority of one who did not give such authority).

     If you are facing forgery charges it is important that you consult with an experienced forgery attorney from Brabazon Law Office. Our experienced attorney's can help you determine if you have a forgery defense.

To forgery charge requires the following;
     • The document must be a writing by which legal rights or obligations
          are created or transferred. A bank check is the most common example.
     • The check itself was falsely made or altered or the endorsement on the
          check was falsely made or altered to make it appear to have been made
          by another person, at another time with different terms or by authority
          of someone who did not give such authority.
     • The check or endorsement was falsely made or altered with the intent
          to defraud.

Common types of conduct that could lead to forgery charges include;
     • Signing a check with another's name
     • Raising a check (making a writing claiming to have been made with
          different terms);
     • Filling in blanks over the signature of another either without authority
          or with unauthorized terms
