Atlanta Identity Theft Lawyer
The penalty for identity fraud in Georgia is not less than one year nor more than ten years imprisonment or a fine not to exceed $100,000.00. The statute seeks to punish the unauthorized use of identifying information concerning a real individual. In 2007, the Supreme Court of Georgia even upheld the conviction of a person for using another person’s identity card (fraudulently) in order to obtain a job.
The federal authorities also prosecute individuals for white collar crimes involving identity theft and identity fraud, and the penalties may be quite severe, depending on the financial loss amount attributable to the accused person. As with all my cases, the touchstone of a strong defense is a thorough investigation and case preparation. I will vigorously litigate your case in order to achieve the best possible result.
