Fort Wayne Identity Theft Attorney

Let Us Defend Your Rights & Reputation

Identity theft, also known as identity deception, is the use of another person’s personal identifying information to benefit the thief financially. For example, if one person steals another person’s credit card and starts purchasing items with that card, this would be considered a form of identity theft. Identity theft is punished harshly in the state of Indiana, as it is automatically considered a felony offense.

If you’re facing identity theft charges, make sure you talk to a skilled Fort Wayne identity theft lawyer as soon as possible. The punishment for a conviction could be higher than you’re willing or able to pay. Let us see how we can help.

Penalties for Identity Theft in Indiana

The penalties for identity theft depend primarily on the effect of the deception and the intent of the accused. On its own, identity theft is a Class D felony that can lead to 1 year in prison and a fine as high as $10,000. If more than 100 victims are involved, or if the fraud reaches higher than $50,000, the crime becomes a Class C felony. A Class C felony could get you 2 to 8 years in prison and a fine starting at $10,000.

If the perpetrator uses a synthetic identity, meaning creating details of their own, this is a Level 6 felony; if more than 100 victims are involved, or the crime involves more than $50,000, it is a Level 5 felony. A Level 6 felony can lead to 6 years to 2 ½ years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. A Level 5 felony can result in 1 to 6 years in prison and a similar fine.
