A strong defense is necessary when facing identity theft charges

Identity theft is a type of white collar crime, and it can bring serious penalties for those convicted of this type of criminal activity. If you are facing identity theft or another type of internet crime, you understand there is a lot at stake and a strong defense is crucial.

White collar crimes are not violent, and it may seem like no one actually gets hurt because much of it takes place online. However, these charges are quite serious, and it is wise to start developing a strong defense strategy. Identity theft is a criminal act that involves using another person's information or access to private information for financial gain. In many cases, identity theft involves someone opening up credit accounts in another person's name.

A serious white collar crime

In order to commit identity theft, a person must gain access to someone's personal information. This includes Social Security number, date of birth, address and more. This information is often accessible in the following ways:

  • A person gains access to this information through certain government entities or financial institutions.
  • A person finds the information in lost or stolen belongings, even in stolen mail. 

It is a type of crime that is growing rapidly, and both state and federal laws are in place against this type of crime. Because of the long-reaching effects that this type of crime can have on a person's financial well-being, credit scores and other areas of life, it is a federal offense. The penalties are steep, and if convicted of identity theft or financial fraud, you could face time behind bars and much more. 

Despite the severity of the charges against you, there are still options available. It is not easy to investigate and prosecute this type of crime, and you have the right to present your own evidence for the benefit of your defense.

Experience matters

When facing these federal charges, the experience of your Texas criminal defense attorney matters. You will benefit from working with a legal ally who understands the law, knows what you up against and can help you fight for your future.

Whether you are already facing charges or you are under investigation, you can start by reaching out for help as soon as possible. There is a lot at stake, but you do not have to fight identity theft charges alone.
