The U.S. Department of Justice says a man from Titusville has been indicted in connection to identity theft and fraud charges.
A 32-year-old Titusville man, Carmel Linot, faces charges for mail fraud, bank fraud, two counts of aggravated identity theft and two counts of false representation of a Social Security number, court officials say.
The indictment says Linot is accused of using someone else’s Social Security number to create a false identity and open a new bank account before getting a credit card.
According to the Department of Justice, if convicted, Linon could face up to 30 years in prison for bank fraud, 20 years for mail fraud, and 10 years for the false SSN.
As for the two counts of identity theft charges, court officials say there could be at least four years of prison for Linton if he’s convicted.
