State v. Brandt The offense of criminal contempt has an element that the offense of forgery does not have, and vice versa. Therefore, defendant’s prosecution for forgery - after his criminal contempt conviction — does not violate the constitutional prohibition against double jeopardy. We affirm defendant’s conviction of forgery but remand so that he may be sentenced for a misdemeanor rather than a felony.
