Avoiding an Identity Theft Conviction

In order for prosecutors to secure a conviction for violating CPC 530.5(a), they would need to have evidence that you are guilty of the crime. For Orange County offenses, this means that they would have to convince a judge and/or jury that you:

  • willfully obtained someone else’s personally identifying information
  • willfully used that information for an unlawful purpose
  • used the information without the consent of the person whose identifying information you were using

There are several scenarios that could result in criminal charges. The following could be considered an example:

Sandra has been saving her money for three years to buy a new car. She has saved $5,000, so she goes to the dealership, picks out the car she wants, and negotiates a payment, but she is denied for a loan. Sandra has a sister with very good credit, so she impersonates her sister and provides false identification to secure the loan in her sister’s name. Everything goes well for a few months, but questions from the bank end in criminal charges. Since Sandra impersonated her sister to secure a financial loan, she could be found guilty of identity theft.

    If anyone needs a trustworthy, honest, hard working and caring attorney, it’s without any doubt, Mr. Randy Collins.

    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat

    "Glad I had Randy to guide me through it."
    I had the unfortunate experience of being too drunk one night in DTF which led to a Drunk in Public charge. I was able to hire Randy after looking online for a good lawyer. I ended up paying about $3,500 for his services and he got the case dismissed. It was an easy process. It was my first time getting in trouble with the law, and I am glad I had Randy and Chris there to guide me through.

    Randy is a great attorney that has helped me out of a bad situation. I refer all of my friends that get in trouble and he has gotten all of their cases either dismissed or reduced significantly. You definitely get what you pay for when you hire this firm.

    "Randy is one of the best attorney's you could ever have."
    Randy is one of the best attorneys you could ever have. I’m eternally grateful to Randy and his team for his dedication and professionalism. Randy is very brilliant when it comes to felonies, probation violations, or other criminal cases... Randy is the best lawyer you can have. when other lawyers told me they couldn’t help me out... Randy always told me he can help me and there was never an impossible case to bring in his favor. He was always in touch and keeping me updated on my case, and he gave me the peace and comfort I needed during difficult times. This is the second time he has had to help me stay away from jail. I will never look into other lawyers. I’ll be a loyal client to Randy from now on. You are #1, Randy. Thank you
