Identity Theft Cases
Mr. Seitles is considered an authority on identity theft cases in the Southern District of Florida and he has been featured in the Daily Business Review and the Miami Herald discussing this aggressively prosecuted crime.
Identity theft is when a person impersonates another individual by using false information like a birth certificate, social security card, passport or license.
Recently, Congress passed the Aggravated Identity Theft statute, a law with very severe punishments including a two-year minimum mandatory sentence even for first-time offenders. This statute is intended to deter people from stealing other people's identity to use as their own. People are accused of identity theft in many different ways, including applying for United States passports and other documents with false documents, applying for credit cards and loans with false papers, or opening up bank accounts using the identity of another.
State and federal law enforcement are aggressively seeking to prosecute this crime because it effects our national security. A person accused of identity theft can be assured that Mr. Seitles' experience and reputation will help guide them through a new and complicated area of criminal law.
