Taking a look at identity theft statutes

With modern technology, an increasing number of people have found themselves in hot water over accusations of online identity theft or other types of cyber offenses. If you live in Stamford, or anywhere else in the state of Connecticut, you should understand the laws and possible penalties of identity theft if you find yourself in this position. At Joseph J. Colarusso, our firm knows all too well how devastating these allegations can be for people throughout the country, and the significant impact it can have on their life.

In Connecticut, you may be charged with first degree identity theft (a Class B felony) if the total amount of property that was stolen is greater than $10,000, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. However, if the alleged victim is over the age of 60, you could face first degree identity theft charges if the amount of property that was reportedly taken is in excess of $5,000. Criminal impersonation, on the other hand, is considered a misdemeanor, while the trafficking of personal information is a Class D felony.

If you have been accused of identity theft, you may have no idea of how to move forward and confront the situation. However, it is essential to carefully consider each and every option. From a considerable amount of time in prison to steep fines and a damaged reputation that may haunt you for years, the consequences of identity theft charges are very serious.
