Under A.R.S. § 13-2002 , a person commits forgery if, with intent to defraud, the person falsely makes, completes or alters a written instrument; knowingly possesses a forged instrument; or offers or presents, whether accepted or not, a forged instrument or one that contains false information. In most instances, forgery is a class 4 felony. However, if the forged instrument is used in connection with the purchase, lease or renting of a dwelling that is used to facilitate human smuggling, the forgery is a class 3 felony. Sentencing for a felony crime varies greatly on the circumstances of the case and prior criminal history.
