Hello. I wanted to know if you signed your father's name because, if you did, there is a possibility you could be charged with forgery. However, if you father told you this was ok then the district attorney could not prove you had the "intent to defraud" your father. They cold not get a conviction against you then. This is the law that would have to be proved:470. (a) Every person who, with the intent to defraud, knowing thathe or she has no authority to do so, signs the name of anotherperson or of a fictitious person to any of the items listed insubdivision (d) is guilty of forgery. (b) Every person who, with the intent to defraud, counterfeits orforges the seal or handwriting of another is guilty of forgery. (c) Every person who, with the intent to defraud, alters,corrupts, or falsifies any record of any will, codicil, conveyance,or other instrument, the record of which is by law evidence, or anyrecord of any judgment of a court or the return of any officer to anyprocess of any court, is guilty of forgery. (d) Every person who, with the intent to defraud, falsely makes,alters, forges, or counterfeits, utters, publishes, passes orattempts or offers to pass, as true and genuine, any of the followingitems, knowing the same to be false, altered, forged, orcounterfeited, is guilty of forgery: any check, bond, bank bill, ornote, cashier's check, traveler's check, money order, post note,draft, any controller's warrant for the payment of money at thetreasury, county order or warrant, or request for the payment ofmoney, receipt for money or goods, bill of exchange, promissory note,order, or any assignment of any bond, writing obligatory, or othercontract for money or other property, contract, due bill for paymentof money or property, receipt for money or property,Also, if your friend knew you signed your father's name , then he could also be charged with forgery. So, if he wants to be ungrateful to you, then you can tell him that he faces charges as well. He would be considered part of the fraud. Here is the law:475. (a) Every person who possesses or receives, with the intent topass or facilitate the passage or utterance of any forged, altered,or counterfeit items, or completed items contained in subdivision (d)of Section 470 with intent to defraud, knowing the same to beforged, altered, or counterfeit, is guilty of forgery. Here is the possible maximum penalty for forgery:473.
