Fight Your White Collar Crime Charge

Brooklyn Identity Theft Attorney

Facing Charges for Criminal Impersonation in NY?

With the increasing rates of fraudulent crimes in recent years, law enforcement agencies throughout the nation have ramped up their efforts to arrest, prosecute and convict individuals who commit a variety of fraud offenses. Among these, identity theft has become an offense heavily targeted by both local and federal law enforcement agencies. Considered a white collar crime for its non-violent, financially motivated nature, identity theft occurs when someone uses another's personal information, such as their name, Social Security number, credit card number or other financial information, without permission in order to commit fraud or other crimes.

Identity Theft Charges in New York

New York establishes several different types of identity theft offenses, ranging from misdemeanor NY criminal impersonation charges to serious felony offenses.

The possible identity theft charges that may arise include:

  • Criminal impersonation (NY Penal Law § 190.25)
  • 3rd, 2nd and 1st degree identity theft (NY Penal Law § 190.78-80)
  • Aggravated identity theft (NY Penal Law § 190.80a)
  • Unlawful possession of personal identifying information (NY Penal Law § 190.81-83)

Regardless of the specific offense you face, you can expect invasive investigations, aggressive prosecution and harsh criminal penalties, including large fines, restitution to victims and possible terms of imprisonment. Should your case be prosecuted as a federal crime, which is common in those that involve interstate activity, you can face extraordinarily harsh penalties, including fines of up to $10,000 and up to 20 years in a federal penitentiary. If you or your loved one has been arrested and charged with any type of identity theft allegation, you need the experienced and aggressive representation our firm's Brooklyn criminal defense lawyers can provide.
