The use of someone else’s personal information can result in any number of charges relating to the theft of identification. This is a very serious crime that can result in state or federal charges—possibly even both.
As technology continues to advance and evolve, the different ways this crime can be committed also continue to grow. However, this has also led to more legal statutes or amendments that define illegal uses of identification and increase penalties for convictions.
