Forgery may also be related to counterfeit goods, as in cases involving designer handbags, watches or jewelry.  Penalties for forgery are affected by the nature of the crime and the amount of property involved in the deception.  Some charges are filed on a state level, while others may be considered federal crimes. Both carry harsh penalties that can affect your future and that of your family.

Depending on the seriousness of the charges, forgery can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.  It is punishable by imprisonment in state prison of up to 3 years or in a county jail of not over one year..
