Falsifying Personal Information In Florida Can Lead To Serious Trouble

by | Mar 4, 2021 | Criminal Charges, Criminal Defense Lawyer |

Growing up we’re often told lying is bad, but that doesn’t always stop us from telling a lie here or there. On occasion, a simple white lie seems like it might do no harm, but when it comes to the law and those enforcing it – a small lie can lead to big trouble. Falsifying personal information on a legal document including changing or modifying for an unlawful purpose is a criminal offense. It is considered a white-collar crime and can be charged as a felony.

This information can include, but is not limited to:

  • Social security numbers
  • Past criminal history
  • Tax information
  • Personal checks
  • Identification cards

Consequences One May Face After Falsifying Information

In Florida, falsifying information is typically a felony charge and can result in prison time, probation, fines, and a permanent criminal record.

If you or someone you know is currently facing charges due to falsifying documents, the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney can make a difference in how the case is handled. Russel Spatz has decades of experience with these types of cases and can help you with yours. Give him a call today at 305-442-0200 to schedule a consultation.
