US v. Hilton, 11-4273

Defendants' convictions on charges involving a scheme to defraud one of the defendant's employer is: 1) vacated as to the convictions for identity theft and aggravated identity theft for two of the defendants because the identity theft statutes are fatally ambiguous regarding whether they include as a criminal offense the unauthorized use of the means of identification of a corporation; 2) affirmed as to the defendants' convictions for mail fraud; and 3) affirmed as to the convictions for mail fraud affecting a financial institution.
