Counterfeiting Lawyer Houston, TX
Protecting Your Best Interests
Modern image-making technology has become more and more sophisticated, allowing people to create more convincing, passable counterfeit money. Counterfeiters are also creative and resourceful. A recent trend consisted of passing apparent $100 bills which were actually $5 bills with only the numbers at the corners and the president's face altered. These hybrid bills are very convincing to the point that many people have passed them unknowingly and unintentionally.
If you have been charged with counterfeiting, the prosecution will need to prove that you committed the action named in the charges knowingly. You may have been charged with making counterfeit money by forgery, or simply with the act of trying to pay a retailer using a fraudulent bill.
