If your child has been arrested in the Orlando area for using a fake ID in violation of Florida law, call the law offices of Finebloom & Haenel. We can assist your child in obtaining a favorable outcome.
There are several violations that can lead to a “fake ID” charge. Some of the most popular are the following:
- Under Florida Statute 322.212, possession of any driver’s license or state identification card not produced lawfully by the appropriate governmental agency is a felony punishable by 5 years in prison and a $5,000.00 fine.
- Florida Statutes 322.051 and 322. 32 and 322.27 makes it a crime to loan your driver’s license or state identification card to a friend or to use your friend’s ID for a fraudulent purpose. Either one of these offenses is a second degree misdemeanor punishable by 60 days in jail and a $500.00 fine. Both parties may have their drivers’ licenses suspended for one year.
- If you use a fake ID to identify yourself when you are questioned by a cop, you can be charged with resisting arrest or obstructing an officer. This is a violation of Florida Statute 843.02. Each is a first degree misdemeanor punishable by one year in jail and a fine of $1,000.00.
- Signing another person’s name to a traffic ticket is a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and $5000.00 fine.
- It is illegal to sell, issue or offer in Florida any I.D. card or other document giving the age of someone without requiring proof of age. Failing to do so is a third degree felony punishable by up to five years in state prison or a $5,000 fine.
