Criminal Defense Lawyer for Identity Theft Arrest
Identity theft is a criminal act of stealing the identity of another person in order to steal money or commit a fraud crime. This is usually accomplished by stealing some form of information that belongs to the victim, such as a birth certificate, identification card, driver’s license, social security card, insurance information, banking information, credit card, passport, or other types of information related to the person’s identity. It is also possible to steal a person’s identity over the internet.
Identity theft is a serious theft crime and can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony crime in California under federal law. The punishment for identity theft can result in a federal sentence of 5 to 30 years in a federal prison. You will also receive a permanent mark on your criminal record. If you have been arrested for identity theft or are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or police for identity theft or any related fraudulent activity, you will need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.
