    Karma strikes again. Justice Roberts agreed with the majority opinion of the court in Flores-Figueroa v. US (2008) that aggravated identity theft required the perpetrator to KNOW that the stolen ID belonged to a real person.
    He and his pals in black robes thus made it infinitely harder to prosecute identity theft.
    Apparently, making up a social security number to get a job or a credit card is no big deal.
