Everyone knows what forgery is, in fact for some it starts quite young, like when they need a note from their mother getting them out of class, or saying that their parents saw the F they got on their project. Obviously the criminal offense of forgery is much more serious than these examples because it involves more than just getting kids out of class and usually involves stealing money. While the gravity of these examples is quite different the action is quite the same, under Utah code forgery is defined as a number of things, giving false information, altering documents, making actions that purport to be the actions of others, and so on.
