Identity Theft Charges Withdrawn – R. v. Y.A. [2011]

R. v. Y.A. [2011] – A joint bank and police investigation regarding fraud credit card losses exceeding $50,000 resulted in charges being laid against my Client.  Police alleged that over the course of several months, compromised bank account information resulted in the fraudulent internet based purchase and delivery of merchandise to my Client’s address.  Over sixteen charges were laid including Identity Theft, Fraudulent Use of Credit Card Data, and Fraudulently Possessing Credit Card Data.  Over the course of several discussions with the Crown, my argument that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction was eventually acknowledged, and all charges against my Client were dropped.  CHARGES WITHDRAWN – NO CRIMINAL RECORD
