The United States Justice Department says that in excess of 12 million American are the victim of identity theft on a yearly basis. Many of those live in California. In fact, we have the second highest rate of identity theft throughout the country. As a result, it should not be surprising that both the federal and state government are taking steps to try and crack down on identity theft.
Why is this important to you?
The fact that there are so many identify theft crimes every year is very relevant to your case if you are arrested. Why? Because whether you are facing state or federal charges, you can count on the prosecution pursuing the case aggressively. They want to send a message to criminals that they can be convicted for these crimes and they want to send a message to the public that they are being tough on these crimes. The fact that they will have an aggressive prosecution means that you need an aggressive criminal defense attorney.
