State law defines forgery as falsely making, completing or altering a written instrument; or, possessing, uttering, offering, disposing of, or putting off as true a written instrument which he/she knows to be forged. [RCW 9A.60.020 Forgery.]
A written instrument would be anything that is expressed in writing. Examples would include changing a contract after it has been signed; signing the name of another without authorization to a credit card purchase or check; making counterfeit money (also classified under the crime of fraud); and, making a copy of an original and passing it off as the original.
Forgery in our state is a Class C felony and therefore the maximum punishment for a conviction would be a prison sentence of 5 years, or a fine of $10,000, or both.
