Forgery in the 4th Degree

The crime of forgery in the fourth degree, as specified in Alabama Code Section 13A-9-4, is a serious offense. This crime involves the act of falsely making, completing, or altering a written instrument with the intent to defraud. As a class A misdemeanor, the penalties for this crime include a hefty fine and possible incarceration. As a person facing such charges, it’s crucial to seek legal advice from experienced attorneys like those at The Stoves Law Firm, P.C. With over 25 years of experience, our Birmingham Forgery Defense Attorney will offer “Reasonable Doubt for a Reasonable Price”.

Examples of Defenses to Forgery

One common defense to forgery is lack of intent to defraud. Simply stated, if we can prove that you did not intend to deceive or harm anyone, then the charges may be dropped. Another defense is the argument of consent. If we can demonstrate that you had permission to alter or complete the document, then it is not forgery. At The Stoves Law Firm, P.C., we will thoroughly review your case and develop the most compelling defense.

Forgery charges can also be defended by challenging the evidence. For instance, if the prosecution’s evidence is insufficient or was obtained illegally, we can argue for its exclusion. Mistaken identity is another potential defense in forgery cases. If you were wrongly identified as the perpetrator, we can help prove your innocence. It’s essential to have a knowledgeable defense attorney to navigate this complex process.
