From prison time to stiff fines, identity theft charges often turn the lives of those accused upside down. Furthermore, when accusations of identity theft follow an individual around on his or her criminal record, they may experience other dilemmas, such as having trouble finding a new job. In Stamford, and across the rest of Connecticut, people who are facing these accusations should make sure they carefully handle the situation.

Looking at the penalties for identity theft

Sometimes, the anonymity provided by modern technology leads to false allegations and wrongful convictions. Unfortunately, those charged with identity theft may face serious consequences such as prison time, a damaged reputation and costly fines.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, sexual assault may take a number of forms, such as rape, sexual contact that isn't wanted and verbal threats.

For example, some are sentenced to prison and required to pay stiff financial penalties. When it comes to the penalties for sexual assault, or any type of crime that is sexual in nature, there are many things to take into consideration. For starters, the laws vary from one state to another and those who live in Stamford should understand how Connecticut handles sexual assault cases.
