Identity Theft Charges
Identity theft takes many forms, and being convicted of identity theft can result in serious penalties, including prison time, heavy fines and forfeiture of personal property. A conviction on your record can also make it difficult to find future employment.
With the stakes this high, the importance of a strong criminal defense cannot be overstated.
Our attorneys can defend against identity theft charges related to any of the following:
- Credit card fraud
- Theft of Social Security numbers
- Producing or selling false or stolen identification documents
- Use of false identification documents to defraud the government
- Trafficking in fake IDs
- Producing, using or selling equipment to create fake IDs
- Using another person's identification documents with the intent to commit or aid a crime
Criminal Defense in State and Federal Courts
Depending on the circumstances, identity theft can be prosecuted on the state level or the federal level. The penalties for federal fraud crimes are generally harsher than penalties for state fraud crimes. If you are facing federal identity theft charges, you will need a criminal defense lawyer with experience in handling federal cases.
At Christiansen Law Offices, we defend against white collar crime and fraud charges in state and federal courts. The sooner we get involved in your case, the sooner we can start fighting to protect your rights and freedom.
