Have You Been Charged with Identity Theft in New Jersey?
Identity theft charges result when someone else's personal information is used in an unauthorized manner. In some cases, just the possession of this identifying information is enough to bring charges.
Using someone else's personal information to do any of the following may be considered identity theft:
- Obtain a credit card
- Purchase a home
- Obtain a loan
- Enroll in a university
- Gain professional employment
These are just several examples. Assuming a false identity or impersonating someone else to obtain any goods or services, or to avoid payments for services, may be considered identity theft. Identifying information includes Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, birthdates, driver's license numbers and any other information that identify who someone is.
At Your Side During a Stressful, Bewildering Time
As experienced criminal defense lawyers, we know the stress and burden that comes with having these charges weighing upon you. An identity theft conviction can carry the possibility of a prison sentence, fines and a criminal record. Some people convicted of identity theft are ordered to pay their victim, which is called "restitution."
The seriousness of these punishments is certainly enough to cause stress and anxiety. When you choose us, we immediately begin building a strategic case to defend you. We don't wait to see how the prosecution will present the story of what happened. We proactively develop a strategy that portrays your side of the story and shows that you should not suffer the harsh penalties that could be facing you in the event of conviction.
