False Affidavit Law and Legal Definition
False affidavit is the statutory offense of perjury in an affidavit authorized by law. It is a false claim against the government, such having reference to the form of the paper rather than its legal character.
An affidavit may be false, irrespective of the absence of an oath administered by an officer qualified to administer oaths. [Williams v. Territory, 13 Ariz. 27, 31 (Ariz. 1910)].
