What Are Identity Theft Offenses?
If you use, possess, or transfer the identity information of a person without their consent, then you can be charged with this type of crime. Identity information includes:
- A person’s name
- Date of birth
- Social security number
- Driving license
- Bank routing or account number
Using another person’s credit card, bank card, or information on a credit card (such as the card number) without their permission is another form of identity theft. Video recording, writing down, or voice recording this information are all offenses.
The severity of the felony depends on the amount of items stolen or used. It can range from a state jail felony, to a first, second, or third-degree felony. It also depends on the amount of money that was stolen.
