Guard your personal identity information with your life, or you could end-up like the victim in a case which has resulted in the indictment of 28-year-old Robert Hardesty of Mansfield.

He's charged with 14 counts of Identity Fraud, six counts of Deception to Obtain Dangerous Drugs, and four counts of Forgery. This after the victim reported to Lexington Police he was receiving bills for prescriptions and medical treatments he did not seek.

First Assistant Richland County Prosecutor Bambi Couch-Page says Hardesty had used the victim's name, social security number, date of birth, and health insurance.

The victim says he does not know Hardesty, or how he got his personal information. Hardesty faces up to sixteen years in prison if convicted of all charges. Accidentally signing his own name for one of the prescriptions also helped authorities identify Hardesty.
