§62-2-8. Allegations of intent to injure, cheat or defraud.
Where an intent to injure, defraud, or cheat is required to
constitute an offense, it shall be sufficient, in an indictment or
accusation therefor, to allege generally an intent to injure,
defraud, or cheat, without naming the person intended to be
injured, defrauded, or cheated, and it shall be sufficient, and not
deemed a variance, if there appear to be any intent to injure,
defraud, or cheat the United States, or any state, or any county,
corporation, officer or person.
