Identity Theft in Redmond
Prosecutors in Washington State often seek to punish identity thieves to the fullest extent of the law. They routinely pursue maximum jail sentences and other severe penalties in an effort to send a message to other would-be criminals. The theft of even small amounts of money can incur life-altering punishments that can derail a person's life, because these crimes are often tried in federal court.
Our Redmond identity theft lawyers will protect your legal rights if you've been charged with any identity theft crime. Regardless of your age or situation, the repercussions of a conviction could be devastating. The Washington court has little regard for those accused of identity theft, so developing a criminal defense becomes paramount. At the Law Office of Jason S. Newcombe, we will put our lengthy experience to work for you in an effort to minimize the damage of an identity theft conviction.
Identity theft crimes usually involve the purchase of items using another person's financial information or personal identity. Some of the crimes labeled as identity theft include:
- Money laundering
- ID Theft
- Check forging
- Check kiting
- Fraudulent transfers of money
- Credit card theft
- Mail fraud
- Obtaining merchandise under a false name
Prosecutors pursue maximum punishments by showing how the crime damaged the victim's credit score. Your lawyer will seek dismissal of the charges, but if this proves impossible they will then pursue the reduction of the penalties you face via negotiation or a plea bargain. Our Redmond identity theft attorneys understand that your freedom is important to you, so they will fight to protect it.
