Robert R. Kurtz, Attorney at Law Identity Theft

Knoxville Identity Theft Defense Lawyer

Identity Theft Federal & State Charges in Tennessee

Identity theft is defined as the illegal act of wrongfully obtaining, intending to use or using another person's personal information in a fraudulent or deceptive way. Gaining access to an individual's social security number, his or her date of birth, bank account numbers, credit card information, email password and other protected data, are just a few of the ways one individual could go about stealing another individual's identity.

Both state and federal governments have laws governing identity theft. If you are facing identity theft charges, you will need to hire a Knoxville identity theft attorney who can aggressively defend you regardless of whether your case is being prosecuted under state or federal jurisdiction.

When facing charges for either a state or federal crime, Mr. Kurtz is the attorney you want on your side.

Robert R. Kurtz, Attorney at Law Identity Fraud Legal Counsel

In most cases, identity theft crimes are committed solely for economic gain. There are instances wherein an individual could face identity theft charges even if no personal benefits were received. Intent plays a significant role in this particular white collar crime. So long as the prosecution can prove the accused individual intended to illegally use the personal information he or she obtained possession of through fraudulent means, that individual will likely be convicted of identity theft. The value of the items purchased using another person's identity may also result in theft crime charges being filed.

From the moment you find out that you are being investigated for identity theft, you are advised to retain the counsel of an experienced Knoxville identity theft lawyer. With him on your side, you stand a far greater chance of being able to avoid facing harsh state or federal penalties.
