Changing someone's check without permission would be considered forgery in Oklahoma. Did someone witness your grandfather say you could change the amount from $100 to $400?

Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

There is a defense to forgery that you acted in good faith and were authorized to alter the check. That is why I asked if you had a witness.

This level of forgery is considered a felony and if convicted a person can get a sentence of up to 7 years in prison. Have you considered speaking with your grandfather and giving him back the money? If he will not discuss this with you, you should consult a lawyer. This is a serious charge.

Please let me me if you have any other questions. If you do not and your are satisfied with my answer, I ask that you rate my service. Good luck.

I had one more thought. If your kid's grandfather does call the police. remember your Miranda Rights. You have the right to remain silent and not make a statement.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
