Fraud / Bad Check / Forgery Cases in Orange County

Mr. Grupenhagen handles all types of fraud, bad check, and forgery cases in Orange County. Penal Code section § 470 is the intent to defraud by signing the name of another person or by signing the name of a fictitious person or the intent to defraud, falsely make, alter, forge, or counterfeit, utter, publish, pass or attempt or offer to pass any check, bond, bank bill, note, cashier’s check, traveler’s check, money order or any driver’s license or identification card issued by a governmental agency. Forgery also includes writing a bad check, which means making, drawing, uttering, or delivering any check or draft upon any bank or depository for the payment of money, knowing that there are insufficient funds.

If you have been accused of forgery in Orange County, your punishment can be imprisonment in the state prison or in the county jail for not more than one year. This means that the District Attorney can file your case as either a felony or misdemeanor. The punishment is dependent upon the amount of money involved and whether you have any prior convictions of the same or theft-related offense.

In all forgery cases, it does not matter whether the victim actually suffered any monetary loss. It also does not matter that you later made payment of the check or other restitution to the victim. Even under these circumstances, Mr. Grupenhagen has been successful in defending cases of fraud or forgery in Orange County.

In bad check cases, you can be referred to the bad check diversion program, which usually occurs prior to any complaint being filed. You will be required to complete a class or classes as directed, and at the discretion of the District Attorney, to pay full restitution to the victim, and to pay any collection fees, if specified. If given the opportunity to participate in the bad check diversion program and you successfully complete the requirements, no statement, or any information in connection with the matter shall be admissible in any action or proceeding. In other words, the bad check case will never be on your record.

Mr. Grupenhagen can help you receive probation when you are facing state prison, can help you reduce your felony to a misdemeanor, and can help you obtain alternatives to jail time such as Work Release Program in conjunction with trash pickup, community service and home confinement. Protect yourself, your family and your future by contacting Mr. Grupenhagen to represent you for a fraud or forgery case in Orange County.
