Resource: State Judicial Issues Instructions for Clearing Name in Identity Theft and Mistaken Identity Cases

Getting one’s life back is never an easy or inexpensive endeavor for victims of identity theft or mistaken identity, but Colorado courts are making it a little bit easier.

State Judicial recommends contacting the District Attorney’s Office victims coordinators in the county in which the malfeasance allegedly occurred to begin the process of clearing one’s name. Next, the victim should file a Form JDF 223 (.pdf), Motion to Determine Factual Innocence, with the court, then report to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, with the motion in hand, for a fingerprint check.

Upon reviewing the evidence presented at the hearing, the court will issue an order (.pdf) declaring that the victim is found by the court to be “factually innocent” of the charges involved in the identity theft. The victim then submits the court order to the appropriate agencies to begin clearing his or her name of criminal wrongdoing.

For more information about identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice both have websites offering comprehensive counsel to victims of this increasingly prevelant form of fraud.
