Being convicted of a white collar crime can often result in severe consequences that include long prison sentences. A woman has been arrested in Pennsylvania for alleged identify theft, but right now, police do not know who she actually is. In addition to the current white collar charges, she may face additional criminal counts for similar crimes that police believe she committed elsewhere in the region.
Police apprehended the woman after she attempted to take out a cash advance with a fake ID at a bank in State College. Investigators allegedly found identification on her person from two different states that bore different names; however, they have yet to make a true identification of the accused. They believe that she had accomplices working with her, but no other arrests have been made so far.
For this incident, she faces charges of identity theft and fraud, among other criminal counts. Investigators believe that she has been involved in other white collar crimes around the State College area, but they did not indicate why they consider her a suspect in those cases. Once they complete their investigation into those crimes, police may add more criminal charges.
Fraud and identity theft are not taken lightly here in Pennsylvania. As the accused awaits her day in court, she is likely looking for the best legal representation to help her defend against the white collar charges so she can obtain the best case scenario. In addition, she may benefit from having someone that can protect her interests and her rights through each step of the criminal justice process.
