Identity Theft in Kent
In Washington, prosecutors often seek to punish persons charged with identity theft to the fullest extent of the law by pursuing maximum jail sentences and other severe penalties. Even small amounts of money can incur life-altering punishments, as these crimes often result in charges from the federal court.
Our Kent identity theft lawyers are available to protect your legal rights. If you're convicted of any identity theft crime, the repercussions could be devastating, regardless of your age or situation. Indeed, the court has little regard for excuses when it comes to stealing another person's identity. At the Law Office of Jason S. Newcombe, we will put our experience to work for you, working diligently to minimize the damage of an identity theft conviction.
Most crimes labeled as identity theft involve the purchase of sale items using another person's financial information or identity. Some of the crimes that fall under the legal category of identity theft include:
- Money laundering
- ID Theft
- Forging of checks
- Check kiting
- Fraudulent transfers of money
- Using stolen credit cards
- Mail fraud
- Obtaining merchandise under a false name
Prosecutors seek maximum punishments by showing the court how the crime damaged the victim's credit history. We will seek dismissal of all charges, but if this proves impossible the next course of action is to seek the reduction of the penalties you face through negotiations with the prosecutor. Our Kent identity theft attorneys will do everything the law allows to help you maintain your freedom.
