12/08/2007 - Criminal - State: CT #13564
My 19 year old son was charged with criminal impersonation. He was arrested outside a bar/restaurant with his older brother's driver's license in his pocket; is that criminal impersonation?
The following is a CT statute:
Sec. 53a-130. Criminal impersonation: Class B misdemeanor.
(a) A person is guilty of criminal impersonation when he: (1) Impersonates another and does an act in such assumed character with intent to obtain a benefit or to injure or defraud another; or (2) pretends to be a representative of some person or organization and does an act in such pretended capacity with intent to obtain a benefit or to injure or defraud another; or (3) pretends to be a public servant other than a sworn member of an organized local police department or the Division of State Police within the Department of Public Safety, or wears or displays without authority any uniform, badge or shield by which such public servant is lawfully distinguished, with intent to induce another to submit to such pretended official authority or otherwise to act in reliance upon that pretense.
(b) Criminal impersonation is a class B misdemeanor.
