Drum roll for criminal defense re identity theft charges

Many music fans in Florida and throughout the world enjoy the talents of drummer, Daniel Adair, who plays for Nickelback, a top-rated pop-rock group. Adair has recently been in the news for something other than his drumming abilities, however. A Florida man is accused of stealing Adair's identity. The man reportedly requested criminal defense representation when authorities began asking him questions.

An alleged string of drum equipment purchases made online raised concerns for fraud analysts. The purchases were made from a company in Austria. The supplies were supposedly purchased under Daniel Adair's identity and totaled approximately $25,000.

The man in Florida, who also happens to be a drummer in a local band, is accused of using Adair's identity to make fraudulent purchases online. Authorities noted that his personal drum system is almost identical to that of Adair's, a coincidence that was apparently noticed by Adair himself when he began researching the other drummer online. The accused was arrested and taken to jail but was later released after posting a bond for $18,750.

In situations like this one in Florida, where a person is facing serious charges that could result in severe penalties, skilled and aggressive criminal defense is often necessary to avoid conviction. Just as the man accused in this situation did, however, any person charged with such crimes may request immediate assistance from an experienced criminal attorney. This is one means of making sure a defendant's rights are protected and the best possible outcome is the primary focus of the court proceedings.
