What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft often involves the unauthorized use of someone else's personal information, such as name, Social Security number, or financial accounts, with the intent to commit fraud. Perpetrators often use stolen identities to make unauthorized purchases, open credit lines, or engage in other criminal activities. In Texas, identity theft is a serious offense that can result in severe penalties.

What Are the Penalties for Identity Theft in Texas?

Texas takes identity theft seriously, and the penalties for conviction can be harsh. Individuals found guilty of identity theft may face imprisonment, fines, and restitution to the victims. The severity of the penalties often depends on factors such as the amount of financial loss incurred by the victim, the number of victims involved, and the defendant's criminal history.

At Peek Law Group, we can meticulously examine the evidence against you, challenge the prosecution's case, and work tirelessly to minimize or dismiss charges whenever possible. Our goal is to secure the best possible outcome for our clients, ensuring their rights are protected throughout the legal process.

Defenses Against Identity Theft Charges

Some common defense strategies against identity theft charges may include:

  • Mistaken Identity: Establishing that the accused was not the perpetrator and that there is a case of mistaken identity.
  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that the accused did not have the requisite intent to commit identity theft, which is a crucial element of the offense.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence and highlighting any weaknesses or inconsistencies that may cast doubt on the charges.
  • Consent: Arguing that the alleged victim provided consent for the use of their personal information, eliminating the element of unauthorized use.
  • False Accusations: Investigating and presenting evidence that the accusations are false, potentially arising from personal disputes or misunderstandings.
