Identity theft; penalties. Reorganizes existing identify theft law and revises penalties. Under existing law, many penalties are based on the amount of financial loss or the number of persons whose identifying information was misused. The bill eliminates those criteria. Amends § 18.2-186.3, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
