Las Vegas Counterfeiting Lawyer: A Seasoned Advocate

Counterfeiting is an old crime that has been around for centuries. The U.S. Constitution grants the federal government the power to punish counterfeiting, and the first federal anti-counterfeiting laws were enacted in 1790. It is illegal to possess the tools used in counterfeiting, or to buy, sell, exchange, or deal in any way in counterfeit securities.

A possible defense to counterfeiting charges is to argue that there was no intent to defraud. Defense counsel might argue that the quality of the imitation item was not sufficient to meet the legal definition of counterfeit. For the best chance of avoiding the serious penalties attached to the crime of counterfeiting, obtain the legal counsel of an experienced Las Vegas criminal defense attorney.
