On January 27, 2017, San Joaquin County residents Aman Izatt, 30, and Jarrod Izatt, 35 were
convicted of thirty-eight counts in an identity theft case and have been sentenced to over twentyfour
years prison by the Honorable Judge James Wagoner in the El Dorado County Superior
Court. Under the 2011 change in law under AB 109, this prison time is now “local prison.”
Accordingly, nine years of their prison sentence will be served in the county jail, and the
remaining 15 year prison sentence will be served on mandatory community supervision.
The couple was found in possession of approximately 40 victims’ personal identifying
information in Pollock Pines, CA. The victims were residents of numerous states, including
Texas, New Jersey, and North Carolina. The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office began
investigating the crimes, and was led to a storage facility located in San Joaquin County
belonging to the couple. There, deputies found a stockpile of personal identifying information
belonging to multiple victims. The couple had several folders listing the victims’ credit card
information, social security numbers, addresses, and bank account numbers.
Further investigation revealed the couple had obtained possession of a stolen checkbook. The
couple then proceeded to write fraudulent checks from the checkbook, totaling approximately
$19,000. The couple was also found counterfeiting money and forging checks issued by an
insurance company and credit card company.
Deputy Miller from the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was the lead deputy on the case, and
the case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Brett Swenson.
District Attorney Vern Pierson stated, “Identity theft cases continue to be an ongoing and
growing crime in our community. This case represents one of the most pervasive uses of the
victims’ personal information our County has seen. It also demonstrates that our office is
committed to working with local law enforcement to ensure these criminals are held accountable
for their actions.”
