Identity Theft in Texas
Arrested? Hire a Trusted Houston Theft Crime Attorney
Identity theft is committed when an individual obtains, possesses, or uses
another person’s identification information with the intent of committing
fraud. Personal identification information can include name, Social Security
numbers, date of birth, and any information that belongs to children under
the age of 18 or a deceased person. Even if the person is caught and hasn’t
used the personal information, state law will automatically assume your
intent and charge you with the crime.

Penalties for Identity Theft
As with most
theft crimes, the severity of your penalties depend on the circumstances of your offense.
Typically, identity theft crimes are charged as either a state jail felony,
third-degree felony, second degree felony, or first-degree felony. Penalties
can include incarceration, fines, probation, and restitution.
The number of identification items found at the time of your arrest will
impact the penalties. If convicted, penalties can include:
Less than 5 identification items: Up to 2 years in state jail and fines up to $10,000
More than 5, but less than 10 identification items: Up to 10 years in state prison and $10,000 in fines
More then 10, but less than 50 identification items: up to 20 years in state prison and $10,000 in fines
