Taking identity of another person or entity A.R.S. 13-2008
knowingly accepting identity of another person; A person commits taking the identity of another person or entity if the person knowingly takes, purchases, manufactures, records, possesses or uses any personal identifying information or entity identifying information of another person or entity, including a real or fictitious person or entity, without the consent of that other person or entity, with the intent to obtain or use the other person's or entity's identity for any unlawful purpose or to cause loss to a person or entity whether or not the person or entity actually suffers any economic loss as a result of the offense, or with the intent to obtain or continue employment.
A person commits knowingly accepting the identity of another person if the person, in hiring an employee, knowingly does both of the following: Accepts any personal identifying information of another person from an individual and knows that the individual is not the actual person identified by that information. Uses that identity information for the purpose of determining whether the individual who presented that identity information has the legal right or authorization under federal law to work in the United States. This is another crime that an aggressive and experienced criminal defense lawyer knows that in Arizona, specifically Maricopa County, is used by the government to determine the nationality of hispanics for deportation purposes.
