Jocelyn Kirsch, the “Bonnie” of identity theft, has stolen a credit card while waiting to strike a plea deal for several other identity theft and fraud charges. Some things never change.
I am always fascinated when I read a story about someone really well-off and educated who has decided to live a life of crime. What makes them abandon legitimate living for the dark side? Why do they steal when they come from a family with money?
Those questions raced through my mind last week when I read about 22-year-old Jocelyn Kirsch and her 25-year old boyfriend, Edward Anderton, now coined Bonnie and Clyde. They were privately schooled and come from good families, but they are being charged with identity theft, forgery, unlawful use of a computer and more.
