Identity Theft Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Future

Defense for Identify Theft Charges in St. Louis

Protecting You from Serious Penalties

The number of identity theft cases throughout the nation has grown substantially over the last few years. With the growing age of technology it can be very easy to access personal information about people, including their name, bank account, credit card, date of birth, social security number, and address information. Identity theft is when someone knowingly steals personal identifying information about a person with the intent to defraud them by assuming the identity of that other person.

This crime can be committed in person, through the mail, or over the internet, and it is considered to be a serious federal offense. If you are facing charges of identity theft then do not hesitate to contact a hard-hitting St. Louis criminal defense lawyer from our firm to protect your rights against the prosecution.

The crime of identity theft can be found in the Missouri Revised Statutes §570.222. Identity theft is considered to be a wobbler crime in that it can be considered either a misdemeanor or felony offense. Penalties may vary depending on the value of appropriated credit, money, goods or services. If the stolen amount exceeds $500, then it is considered to be a felony crime and anything exceeding $50,000 is a Class A Felony. In these severe cases, you can be sentenced to serve between 5 and 10 years in prison as well as pay a fine anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. The court may also order you to pay restitution to the identity theft victim to satisfy any debts or costs that you may have incurred.
