Miami, FL asked in DUI / DWI and Identity Theft for Florida

Q: I was wondering how I find out if my sister took my identity and got a DUI in my name

In 2009 I was going through a hard time my sister told me to come stay with her in Columbus Oh. I came up from FL to see how things would go and they did not work out I was told she had 13 evictions in my name recently I had to go to court because the FWC gave me a fine for a fish that was two in two big I've never been in trouble in my life and when I was talking to the judge he said something about the only thing on my record was a DUI in Ohio and I believe you said in 2012 how do I find out if is that is true and if she took my identity. I will press charges if I have to. Thank you

A: It wouldn’t be the first time that a sister/brother used the identity of a sibling during an arrest. You’ll need to run an FDLE records check and find out where the DUI occurred, then work on getting it off your record. An attorney can assist you. Good luck.

A: Each time a defendant is booked for an arrest, they take fingerprints of that defendant, so this is something that probably would be easy to resolve. You just check the fingerprints on file for the arrest with your fingerprints, And that would be proof of the identity theft. Retain counsel to handle this matter.
