Identity Theft Lawyer in Pittsburgh

Facing identity theft charges?

Although identity theft is not a new type of criminal offense, it has most certainly been revolutionized in recent years. Defined in Pennsylvania's Crimes Code, identity theft is an offense that involves the possession or use, through any means, identifying information of another person without their consent and to further any unlawful purpose. Identity theft is often committed as a financially motivated fraud crime. A serious offense that poses incredibly harsh criminal penalties, anyone who stands accused of identity theft should retain legal representation from our Pittsburgh criminal defense lawyers as soon as possible.

According to § 4120 of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code, defendants will be prosecuted according to the circumstances involved, including the value of any property or services obtained through the use of the identifying information.

  • Value less than $2,000 – first degree misdemeanor
  • Value more than $2,000 – third degree felony
  • Committed in furtherance of a criminal conspiracy – third degree felony
  • A third or subsequent identity theft conviction – second degree felony
  • Victims over the age of 60 or care dependent – elevated one grade higher than original offense

All identity theft allegations are serious criminal charges with unsavory and strong public opinion surrounding them. As these crimes have continued to increase in prevalence in our modern society, local and federal law enforcement have developed specialized task forces designed specifically to arrest, prosecute and convict offenders. As a result, there is a great deal of collaborative force behind prosecutors and their efforts to obtain convictions and the harshest penalties. By having a bold Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney on your side of the legal arena, you can reduce your risks of suffering the maximum criminal consequences.
