FALSE FINANCIAL STATEMENT OFFENSES

False financial statement offenses can be serious charges, requiring the services of an esteemed Colorado criminal lawyer.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with false financial statement offenses if the individual, with intent to defraud:

  • Makes or utters a written instrument which purports to describe the financial condition or ability to pay of himself or another which is false in some material respect and reasonably relied upon; or,
  • Represents in writing that a written instrument purporting to describe another person’s financial condition or ability to pay as of a prior date is accurate with respect to that person’s current financial condition or ability to pay, knowing the instrument to be materially false in that respect and reasonably relied upon; or,
  • Upon filing an application for a financial transaction device with an issuer, knowingly makes or causes to be made a false statement or report, which is false in some material respect and reasonably relied upon, relative to his name, occupation, financial condition, assets, or liabilities or willfully and substantially overvalues any assets or willfully omits or substantially undervalues any indebtedness for the purpose of influencing the issuer to issue a financial transaction device.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a false financial statement offense can be a class 6 felony, a class 1 misdemeanor, or a class 2 misdemeanor.
