Defense Against Identity Theft Charges | Experienced Attorneys And Former Prosecutors

Identity theft charges are becoming increasingly common. The Internet now makes it easier than ever before to access another's personal information. When this information is used fraudulently for one's own gain, it can lead to state or federal charges.

In Florida, the crime of identity theft (technically called "fraudulent use of personal identification information") is quite broad. It includes the scenario that most readily comes to mind — using another's identifying information to access and steal his or her financial resources. Yet it also covers using that information to make online purchases, obtain loans, establish lines of credit or gain other benefits.

Identifying information includes key data such as:

  • Credit card numbers
  • Bank account numbers
  • Social Security numbers
  • Name, address and date of birth
  • Driver's license number
  • Counterfeit personal information

What To Do When Facing Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft is a felony property crime that carries harsh potential penalties. For serious charges involving significant amounts of money or property, you could be facing a mandatory minimum prison sentence.

Fortunately, you have the valuable right to seek legal representation. You owe it to yourself to do so — and sooner rather than later.
