EXPCITE

    TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
    PART I - CRIMES
    CHAPTER 43 - FALSE PERSONATION

HEAD

    Sec. 913. Impersonator making arrest or search

STATUTE

      Whoever falsely represents himself to be an officer, agent, or
    employee of the United States, and in such assumed character
    arrests or detains any person or in any manner searches the person,
    buildings, or other property of any person, shall be fined under
    this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 742; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

       Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 77a (Aug. 27, 1935,
    ch. 740, Sec. 201, 49 Stat. 877).
      Words "shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor" were omitted.
    (See definitive section 1 of this title.) Words "and upon
    conviction thereof" preceding "shall be" were omitted as surplusage
    since punishment cannot be imposed until conviction is secured.
      Maximum imprisonment provision was changed from 1 year to 3 years
    so as to be consistent with sections 911 and 912 of this title, the
    latter having also been changed to 3 years. There is no sound
    reason why a uniform punishment should not be prescribed for the
    offenses defined in these three sections.
      Changes were made in phraseology.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $1,000".
