CRIMINAL IMPERSONATION

Criminal impersonation can be a serious charge, requiring the services of an esteemed Denver criminal lawyer.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with criminal impersonation if the individual assumes a false or fictitious identity or legal capacity, and in such identity or capacity:

• Marries, or pretends to marry, or to sustain the marriage relation toward another without the connivance of the latter; or,

• Becomes bail or surety for a party in an action or proceeding, civil or criminal, before a court or officer authorized to take the bail or surety; or,

• Confesses a judgment, or subscribes, verifies, publishes, acknowledges, or proves a written instrument which by law may be recorded, with the intent that the same may be delivered as true.

• Performs an act that, if done by the person falsely impersonated, might subject such person to an action or special proceeding, civil or criminal, or to liability, charge, forfeiture, or penalty; or,

• Performs any other act with intent to unlawfully gain a benefit for himself, herself, or another or to injure or defraud another.
