Section 2. For purposes of this act, the following words shall have the following meanings:
Section 6. Upon conviction for any crime in this act, in addition to any other punishment, a person found guilty shall be ordered by the court to make restitution for financial loss caused by the criminal violation of this act to any person whose identifying information was appropriated. Financial loss may include any costs incurred by the victim in correcting the credit history or credit rating of the victim or any costs incurred in connection with any civil or administrative proceeding to satisfy any debt, lien, or other obligations resulting from the theft of the victim's identification documents or identifying information, including lost wages and attorney's fees. The court may order restitution for financial loss to any other person or entity that suffers a loss from the violation.
Section 7. In any criminal proceeding brought pursuant to this act, the crime shall be considered to be committed in any county in which any part of the crime took place, regardless of whether the defendant was ever actually present in that country, or in the county of residence of the person who is the subject of the identification documents or identifying information.
Section 8. In any case in which a person obtains identification documents or identifying information of another person in violation of this act, uses the documents or information to commit a crime in addition to a violation of this act, and is convicted of that additional crime, the court records for the additional crime shall reflect that the person who was the subject of the identification documents or identifying information did not commit the crime.
(a) As used in this section, the following words shall have the following meanings:
Section 12. Upon request by a victim of a crime created by this act, identification documents issued by a state, county, or municipal agency and used to perpetrate a crime created by this act shall be reissued at no charge to the victim. An agency may require proof of the criminal activity, such as a police report, before reissuing the identification documents.
Section 13. Although this bill would have as its purpose or effect the requirement of a new or increased expenditure of local funds, the bill is excluded from further requirements and application under Amendment 621 because the bill defines a new crime or amends the definition of an existing crime.
Section 14. The provisions of this act are severable. If any part of this act or the application of such part to any person or circumstance is declared invalid or unconstitutional, that declaration shall affect neither the part that remains nor the application of such part to any person.
Section 15. This act shall not be construed to repeal other criminal laws. Whenever conduct proscribed by any provision of this act is also proscribed by any other provision of law, the provision which carries the more serious penalty shall apply.
