Taylor v. Commonwealth (U)

Sufficient evidence supports the defendant’s conviction for attempted identity theft after she tried to cash a stolen check. The check bore the victim’s name, bank account number, and forged signature. Although the defendant didn’t affirmatively misrepresent her identity to the bank teller, the check wouldn’t have been useful without the victim’s account number, name, and forged signature. When the defendant presented the check to be cashed, she attempted to “use” these pieces of the victim’s identifying information to obtain money.

Affirmed; remanded to correct a clerical error.
