Florida Possession of a Fake ID

It is difficult to gauge just how many individuals are caught in possession of a fake ID for underage purchase of alcohol, simply because not all crimes are reported. If you are one of the lucky ones, you might have someone simply take the ID. Sure, this is a slight loss for you, because chances are you did spend some sort of money on the ID. However, it saves you much more trouble, later down the line. If you are caught inside a bar or by a police officer, you have much bigger problems to handle than just figuring out where to get your next ID. This could result in a night at the police station.

Representing Youth in Juvenile Fake ID Charges

So you are visiting the Orlando, Florida area and want to partake in all the fun and excitement of the local bar scene. Problem is, you aren’t 21 yet, so what to do if you’re underage? Although just sticking away from alcohol and attending the theme parks is a viable option, an opportunity to snatch up a fake ID might present itself to you (according to the University of Tampa’s “The Minaret”, 53 percent of students say obtaining a fake ID for underage drinking is pretty easy). The problem is, if you are caught with a fake ID, you may risk some very serious consequences.

The Consequences of Getting Caught With a Fake ID

Problems from using a fake ID don’t end there. Chances are, if you are caught and spend a night in jail, charges are going to be brought against you. These charges, if you don’t have a professional to defend you, often include a rather large fine, community service, and a mark on your permanent record. When this happens, it is a good idea to seek out the help of a lawyer. These individuals have experience helping out individuals such as yourself. There is always a chance a juvenile lawyer isn’t going to get you completely off the hook, but the fine and other punishments are greatly reduced. In some cases, you are placed on a probation period, where the case is expunged from your record if you complete the period without getting in trouble again.

Orlando Juvenile Lawyers Handling Fake ID Cases

False identification charges may have a serious impact on your current life, especially from your parents and guardians. You might lose some rights at home, preventing you from going out with your friends. It probably won’t prevent you from obtaining a job, unless this isn’t your first arrest. If it is scene that you have a previous record, even though the Orlando lawyer is able to reduce the charges, the string of incidents may hamper your ability to find work in the future.
