What Is Identity Theft?

Under Title 18, Section 1028 of the United States Code, Identity Theft – or “Aggravated Identity Theft” – refers to the unauthorized use of another person’s identification. It requires the intent to commit unlawful activity using the other person’s activity.

Identity theft refers to the act of stealing private information, while identity fraud refers to the use of this information.

Identity theft carries a minimum mandatory prison sentence of two years for every count and is a felony in many states. As your identity fraud lawyer, we’ll ensure that charges are accurate, sentencing appropriate, and even work to get the charges dropped in the event that you have been wrongly accused or the charges were made inaccurately.

What Types of ID Theft Charges Do We Handle?

Identity Theft Lawyer


If you’re looking for legal experts in Miami who fight identity theft and fraud charges, then look no further. At the Law Offices of Ama-Mariya Hoffenden, we offer the best legal representation in the region, covering the following kinds of charges:

Credit Card Fraud

Our credit card fraud attorneys help you fight theft and fraud charges relating to credit cards. This is the unauthorized use of credit and debit cards whereby an individual is accused of fraudulently obtaining money without permission.

Bank Fraud

Bank fraud is a federal crime that has a pretty broad definition. It refers to any artifice or scheme whereby an individual intends to defraud financial institutions. It is effectively a form of theft.

Check Fraud

Check fraud refers to the illegal use of checks or the manufacturing and/or use of fraudulent checks designed to defraud an institution or an individual of money.

Internet Identity Theft

Internet identity theft has a broad definition but generally refers to illegal activities whereby an individual or criminal operation illegally obtains sensitive personal information from people online.

Why Do You Need an Identity Theft Defense Attorney?

Identity theft is a white-collar crime that is usually financially motivated – meaning a lot is on the line for both parties. If you have been charged with identity fraud or theft, then you will face severe penalties, and if you have experienced fraud, you could be at risk of losing money.

Your case must be fought by an experienced identity fraud attorney who understands federal and state laws and can work to defend your rights effectively in court.

What Are the Penalties for Identity Theft in Florida?

The penalties for identity theft in Florida vary depending on the allegations and what can be proven. The crime is broken up into first, second, and third-degree felonies, and we’ve outlined the kind of sentencing you should expect below.

Third-Degree Felony

Willfully using another person’s identifying information is a third-degree felony and may be punished by up to five years in prison.

Second-Degree Felony

Willfully using another person’s personal information to purchase property worth over $5,000, or using the identifying information of between 10 and 19 individuals, is a second-degree felony and punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Just like assault and battery, identity theft can also become a first-degree felony.
