San Antonio Counterfeiting Lawyer
Aggressive Defense against Serious Federal Charges
Any time a person forges an object with intent to use its likeness to gain an advantage, they are guilty of counterfeiting. In some cases, creating a fake document can result in federal charges with severe consequences. For example, if you are caught manufacturing a fake passport, you could face fines of up to $250,000 and a federal prison sentence of up to 25 years. If you are under investigation for counterfeiting, it is crucial that you begin building your defense as soon as possible. The San Antonio counterfeiting lawyer at The Law Office of Guillermo Lara Jr. can help.
What Constitutes a Counterfeit?
Unlike forgery, counterfeiting applies more to government documents. While it is illegal to forge a doctor's note to skip work, it is not a federal crime. If you forge a last will to obtain money from a family estate, however, you could face federal charges.
Other items that constitute counterfeit include:
- Securities certificates such as bonds or notes
- Ship manifests
- Postage stamps
- Official government documents
- Military discharge papers
- Power of attorney
Aggressive Defense against Serious Charges
In most instances of counterfeiting, people commit these illegal activities to defraud their victims of large sums of money. Counterfeiting a bank or treasury note, for example, is a scheme sometimes used by investment bankers that can cause economic instability. Federal prosecutors take these crimes seriously, so it's important that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer fighting for you.
