According to the Florida State Credit Card Crime Act, anyone who fraudulently uses, or possesses with the intent to fraudulently use, someone else’s personal identifying information and who doesn’t have consent of the owner commits the crime of fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Identifying information includes a person’s name, telephone number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, driver’s license number, state identification number, or any other piece of information that can identify a person. Anyone committing criminal use of personal identification commits a third-degree felony.

Anyone who uses someone else’s personal identifying information to obtain property or anything of value worth more than $5,000 commits a second-degree felony.

If the identity theft involved the personal identifying information of 10 to 19 individuals, the crime is a second-degree felony.

If the identity theft involved the personal information of 20 or more individuals, or resulted in a pecuniary gain of $50,000 or more, the crime is a first degree felony.

Dammy Krane was charged with a second degree felony as the identity fraud he allegedly committed involved the details of more than 10, but less than 20 victims.

Individuals convicted of a felony identity theft crime in Florida face anywhere from a year to 40 years or more in prison.

Because Dammy Krane also has an additional 8 other felony charges, it is possible he may face an additional plethora of potential prison time if he is unable to secure a good plea deal. However if the star should plead guilty and the State is willing to consider accepting his plea, he may only face up to 10 years in prison which is in line with the minimum sentencing guidelines for the offences allegedly committed.

Recently a judge in Mississippi sentenced 3 Nigerians to 235 years in prison for similar offences.
