Massachusetts Forgery and Counterfeiting Laws
Fraud is a big problem in our society and law enforcement responds to the problem by arresting a lot of individuals. Some of these cases turn out to be difficult cases to prosecute. To prove a person guilty of forgery or counterfeiting, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant intended to defraud, forge, alters or counterfeits an instrument.
Massachusetts Forgery and Counterfeiting penalties
If the defendant is found guilty of forgery or counterfeiting, the defendant can face up to 10 years in state prison or not more than 2 years in jail.
