Proactive Approach To Defending Identity Theft Charges
In recent years, prosecutors have begun cracking down on identity theft. While this is not a violent crime, the state of Florida and the federal government recognize the harm it can cause and punish offenders harshly.
Penalties for a conviction can include significant jail time, fines and a permanent criminal record. In fact, the government has recently enacted 18 US Code 1029, which could enhance potential sentences by adding minimum mandatory prison time.
Prosecuting attorneys may consider the following fraud-related offenses as identity theft:
- Credit card fraud
- Check fraud
- Tax fraud
- Mail theft
- Internet scams
