What Is a Fake ID?

A fake ID is a form of identification that has been altered, forged, or counterfeited. These IDs are typically used by underage individuals who want to buy alcohol or gain entry to bars, clubs, or other places where they would otherwise be denied. Some people also use fake IDs to purchase firearms or get a job.

It is important to note that it is illegal to possess a fake ID in Texas, even if you do not use it. Simply having a fake ID in your possession is a criminal offense.

What Are the Penalties for a Fake ID Conviction?

In Texas, the penalties for a fake ID conviction depend on the specific circumstances of the case. Generally speaking, the use or possession of a fake ID is a Class C misdemeanor. If you are convicted of this crime, you can face a fine of up to $500 and community service of 8 to 12 hours. However, if you are caught with a fake ID on a college campus, you can face additional penalties.

At Texas A&M University, students are held to a higher disciplinary standard, and when you accept admittance into the school, you must also submit to the Student Code of Conduct. This code of conduct forbids forgery, alteration, possession, or misuse of identifying documents and general violations of the law. Failing to follow these codes can lead to a student disciplinary review. The results of this student trial may determine what disciplinary actions the university takes against you, up to probation, suspension, expulsion, or more. These consequences are described in Rule 27 of the student code.

In addition to these penalties, a fake ID conviction can also result in the suspension of your driver’s license. The length of the suspension will depend on your age and the specific circumstances of the case.

How Can a Fake ID Attorney Help?

If you have been charged with a fake ID offense, you may be wondering if it is worth it to hire an attorney. You may assume that these cases are relatively straightforward and that you can handle it on your own. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Fake ID cases are often much more complicated than they initially appear. An experienced attorney can help you understand the charges you are facing and the potential consequences of a conviction. They can also help you explore your legal options and develop an effective defense strategy. Depending on the circumstances of the case, your lawyer may be able to get the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.

At James, Reynolds, Spiegelhauer & Ask we can not only represent you in criminal defense proceedings but also in representing students in Student Conduct Proceedings at Texas A&M University. If you are facing disciplinary actions from the university, our experienced attorneys can guide you through the process and help defend your rights as a student.
