Legal Question: Identity Theft

What can I do to have charges brought against a person who stole my identity and embezzled from my business account?

Most County Prosecutors will  jump all over this sort of thing. With the national statistics now projecting 3 out of 5 Americans becoming ID theft victims in the next three years, it’s hard to understand why this is being allowed to slide. Prosecutors do have have legal full discretion to decide which crimes they want to file and which ones they do not. Police play a big role in this as they are responsible for competently and professionally investigating crimes and obtaining evidence that the prosecutors can us in court. Sometimes where the would-be-defendant is a spouse or family member of the victim, that could lead to the label, “civil matter.” But for the most part workplace theft, especially embezzlement, are taken seriously.
