South Florida Man Indicted for Identity Theft and Debit Card Fraud

Jacksonville, Florida – United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces the return of an indictment charging Kency Aime (29, Biscayne Bay) with one count of access device (credit card) fraud and nine counts of identity theft. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison for the fraud count, and up to 5 years in prison for each identity theft count.

According to the indictment, Aime possessed 34 stolen MasterCard and Visa debit cards, as well as the Social Security numbers of nine individuals.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by United States Secret Service and the Florida Highway Patrol. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kevin C. Frein.
