What Does a Forgery Charge Mean?

Forgery is a Class D felony in Kentucky and can carry 1-5 years in prison. It is often used as a charge where a stolen check is cashed. Possession of a forged instrument is also a D felony and is easier to prove since you just have to possess the forged instrument, the prosecution does not have to prove WHO actually did the forgery. Forgery and Possession of Forged Instrument charges are defined in KRS 516.010 and following.  There are 3 levels of charges for forgery and 3 levels of charges for possession of forged instrument.  These charges may be misdemeanor or felony charges. If you are charged with forgery or possession of a forged instrument you need to hire a criminal defense attorney.  For advice and representation in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453.
