ID Theft Defined As Crime

The House Judiciary Committee has passed a bill establishing the crime of aggravated identity theft--the use of a stolen identity to commit certain crimes--and setting penalties for it. The Identity Theft Penalty Enhancement Act, H.R. 1731, also seeks stronger punishment for those who abuse a position of trust to commit insider identity theft. The intent of the insider provision is to remind employees that there are consequences for their actions, says Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, the bill's sponsor. The next step for the bill is a vote by the full House.
