The crime of identity theft is punished more severely if the victim is 60 years of age or older; the victim is physically or mentally disabled; the personal information of 5 or more people is used or obtained; or the crime results in financial loss of $3,000 or more. Under state law, possession of a financial forgery laboratory is illegal. This would be any system, computer, or device set up to obtain personal information or to manufacture forged documents. It is also illegal to read or copy personal or financial information without the consent of the person that information belongs to.
