Identity Theft

FORT COLLINS IDENTITY THEFT LAWYER

Identity Theft Crimes Increase With Technological Advances

With the exponential improvements in computer and internet technology over the past number of years, it is easier to track people’s dealings and communications, which has increased the state’s ability to allege and prosecute crimes involving computer and internet technology as it relates to identity theft.

One of the areas most affected by these technological advances involves the increased instances of identity theft. At Leah Bishop, L.L.C., we have vast experience with identity theft cases, including the investigation and evidentiary issues associated with these recent technological advances. We can provide you with a tough defense against these charges.

Complicated Technology ∙ Complicated Criminal Cases

As the complications of the crime instrument go up, so do the complications in the corresponding criminal defense trials. Issues of evidence and illegal search and seizure, for example, make many identity theft cases far more complex. Fort Collins identity theft attorney Leah Bishop has the experience and litigation skill to handle these complexities and advocate for your defense.

Identity Theft

The statute for identity theft is relatively broad, including most instances in which people hold themselves out to be someone else and execute any kind of legally valid instrument. Crossover between identity theft, fraud and forgery and white collar crimes is common.

Some instances of identity theft include:

  • Falsely gaining donation money – Pretending to be someone from a famous charity collecting money for an altruistic cause
  • Attempting to avoid criminal penalties or civil liability – Pretending to be someone else when questioned by the police after a serious accident or crime has been committed
  • Bank and Internet fraud – Taking someone’s social security number and banking information and using it to withdraw funds, either in person or online

At Leah Bishop, L.L.C., we have experience litigating identity theft cases like these. We work to suppress evidence, cross-examine witnesses and paint you in the best light possible to minimize your sentence.
