Columbus Identity Theft Attorney

Identity Theft Cases

If you have been charged with identity theft, legal advice from a Columbus theft crime lawyer can make a difference as to how your case is resolved. Identity theft is the taking of another person's identity for financial gain or illegal activities. It is a theft crime that can involve obtaining and using many different types of personal information such as a name, address, Social Security number, date of birth, driver's license number, bank account information, credit card numbers and passwords that access various kinds of accounts. It can also include taking and using someone else's driver's license, commercial driver's license, state identification card, social security card and birth certificate.

Under state laws, identity theft is a felony offense that can result in harsh penalties such as:

  • Incarceration
  • Fines
  • Victim restitution
  • Asset seizure

Charges will be based on the value of property, goods or services acquired through identity theft, as well as any debts or legal obligations that were incurred. Both charges and penalties will be increased if the identity theft involved an elderly or disabled person.
