Paul Ceglia was indicted on charges he faked evidence to support his claims that he signed a contract with Facebook Inc. (FB) Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg giving him a multibillion-dollar share in the world’s biggest social network,

Ceglia was arrested and charged last month in a criminal complaint with one count each of wire fraud and mail fraud, and was accused of the same crimes by a New York federal grand jury, according to an indictment released yesterday by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan.

Ceglia, 39, doctored a legitimate 2003 contract with Zuckerberg, in which the future CEO agreed to perform coding work for Ceglia’s website, into a phony contract “in which Zuckerberg agreed to provide Ceglia with at least a 50 percent interest in Facebook,” according to the indictment.
