Van Nuys Identity Theft Attorney
White Collar Crimes Defense Lawyer
Identity theft is sometimes considered to be a white collar crime because it is non-violent and financially motivated. Identity theft is more personal, however, as there is a clear victim to the crime. Within the past decade, identity theft crimes have exponentially increased across the nation as more people become proficient with technology. It may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the ways in which the information was gained and the ways in which it was used. If the information was used in such a way as to deprive the person of money or goods, you will likely face additional charges. Charged with identity theft? Call the Law Offices of Jonathan C. Rosen to discuss your case with an experienced Van Nuys criminal defense attorney.
