The prosecutor must prove:

  • The document was counterfeited, forged, altered, or falsely made in some manner;
  • You represented, either by actions or words, that the document was true or genuine and either presented, offered, or exhibited it;
  • When you did this, you knew that the document was either counterfeit, altered, forged, or false;
  • When you did this, you intended to cheat or defraud someone.

The crime is complete when the document is offered, regardless of whether the document is accepted or if actual losses occur.

Uttering and publishing can also include using counterfeit money, which is a five-year felony and can include a fine of up to $2,500.

The most frequent uttering and publishing crime deals with forged and/or fraudulent checks.

For example, fraudulently signing your name as a payor on a check and then trying to cash it at a bank or gas station will constitute a charge of uttering and publishing.

Also if you admit to the police that you fraudulently signed the check, you’ll also be charged with the crime of forgery.

Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
