perjury (noun) the crime of giving false evidence under oath.

A person is guilty of perjury if they give false witness after taking oath in a court of law. It is lying under oath, and is a punishable offense. Perjury, that is, giving false evidence misleads the court and there is the danger of the court giving the wrong judgment. That is why perjury is a crime.

  • The court warned the witness that if he lied under oath, while giving witness, he would be guilty of perjury and punished accordingly.
  • He was sentenced to three years in prison for perjury. While he was unwilling to lie, his attorney persuaded him to lie, so that his client's case might be saved.
