Under New York law, forgery involves falsely making, completing or altering a written document with the intent to defraud someone. Third-degree forgery is a Class A misdemeanor. Second-degree forgery, which is a Class D felony, involves falsely making, completing or altering a will, credit card, public record, prescription or public transportation token. First-degree forgery, which is a Class C felony, involves counterfeiting money, stock, securities or other valuable instruments. Forgery charges are often brought alongside fraud or theft charges, making it even more crucial that you have an experienced defense lawyer working for you.
