Penalties for Identity Theft

Identity theft is the stealing and use of someone's personal information, usually for monetary or some other type of gain. This can include the theft of bank account information, credit card numbers or social security numbers, which can then be used to purchase goods or services. Identity theft is both a state and federal crime and is usually linked to other offenses such as credit card fraud. Penalties for a conviction in an identity theft case may include imprisonment, fines and restitution.

Federal Charges for Identity Theft

Personal information that is typically stolen in an identity theft crime include name, birth date and place, address, driver's license number, bank accounts numbers, mother's maiden name, social security number and internet passwords and account information. In sentencing, the court will look at many factors in an identity theft case. They will review what information was taken, the harm and financial damage that occurred as a result of the theft, plus the defendant's criminal history.

Many identity theft crimes are charged as federal offenses which can make your case extremely complex, involving law enforcement agencies such as the FBI.
