§61-3C-15. Computer as instrument of forgery.
The creation, alteration or deletion of any computer data
contained in any computer or computer network, which if done on a
tangible document or instrument would constitute forgery under
section five, article four, chapter sixty-one of this code will
also be deemed to be forgery. The absence of a tangible writing
directly created or altered by the offender shall not be a defense
to any crime set forth in section five, article four, chapter
sixty-one if a creation, alteration or deletion of computer data
was involved in lieu of a tangible document or instrument.
