Charged With Counterfeiting?

Federal Counterfeiting Charges in Florida

Miami Federal Defense Attorney

Counterfeiting is a criminal offense that involves creating false replicas of an item. This may be some form of currency, such as paper money or coins. It may also relate to legal or financial documents, as in the case of bonds, marriage certificates, postage stamps, or passports. In more recent years, counterfeiting has become increasingly common in cases involving designer goods: watches, jewelry, handbags, clothing, and accessories.

A person may face federal charges for counterfeiting if he or she is suspected of creating or dealing in counterfeit currency or goods. Even possessing materials for the purpose of counterfeiting is a serious offense. If convicted of counterfeiting legal tender, a defendant may face up to 20 years in prison along with heavy fines. Specific penalties, however, may vary depending on the unique case.

Charged with Forgery in Florida?

Forgery is defined as the act of making an unlawful copy or replica of something in such a way as to deceive others into believing it is genuine. Forgery is most often committed for financial gain and is a term that may be used interchangeably with counterfeiting. Forgery may be related to financial or legal documents, prescription forms, medical records, identification documents, and more. It may also be related to such criminal offenses as fraud and identity theft.

Forgery may be charged under state or federal law, depending on the particular case. If charged as a federal offense, the defendant will likely face more aggressive prosecution and an investigation by federal agencies that will have more resources, time and manpower to dedicate to forgery investigations.

At times, federal investigations may last for months or even years as federal agencies attempt to gather as much evidence as possible against the defendant (who may not even be aware that he or she is the subject of an investigation).
