For the strongest possible defense, choose Perlmutter & Pourshalimi as your identity theft lawyer
Identity theft, or taking another person’s personal identifying information for unlawful or fraudulent use, is a growing problem in California. Police and prosecutors are understandably eager to crack down on this activity and secure convictions. If you have been accused of identity theft, don’t just wait and see how police and prosecutors are going to react. Instead, be proactive about defending yourself by hiring an experienced identity theft defense attorney from Perlmutter & Pourshalimi.
Possible Identity Theft Defenses
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we will create and implement a personalized defense strategy for you based on the specifics of your case, such as the available evidence, the disposition of the prosecutor, and your goals for the resolution of your case. Here are some of the most common defense arguments for identity theft charges:
- No unlawful purpose: In order to be guilty of identity theft, it’s not enough to possess someone’s personal information without their consent. You must also have used that information for an unlawful purpose.
- False accusations: Sometimes, victims of identity theft are mistaken about who has stolen and used their information and they may make false accusations.
- Insufficient evidence: If we can poke holes in key parts of the prosecution’s arguments, they may not have enough evidence to convict you of identity theft.
