Identity Theft and Related Crimes Defense
Under Colorado law, a person can be convicted of identity theft if they knowingly use the personal or financial identifying information of another, or a device, to obtain anything of value. A conviction for identity theft in Colorado can carry serious penalties. As a class 4 felony, a judge can sentence you up to 6 years in prison and up to $500,000 fine. However, prison time becomes mandatory and the maximum penalty for identity theft can increase to 12 years in prison if you have a prior conviction for identity theft.
There are several defenses that a skilled attorney at Weber Law can employ on your behalf. Knowing which defense will best serve you will depend on the unique facts of your individual case. However, your defense starts with an experienced attorney that understands the language of the law. For example, the prosecution must prove that you knowingly used the information or device, AND that you knew that the information or device belonged to another person. If the prosecutor cannot prove every element of the offense, you are not guilty. If you or someone you know has been accused, charged, or convicted of identity theft or any related offense, schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney at Weber Law today. Some possible defenses we may explore to win your case include:
-Although you used someone else’s information, they gave you permission to do so.
-You did not have the intent to defraud anyone.
-You didn’t know you were using someone’s information.
-You knew the information wasn’t yours, but you did not know it belonged to a real person.
