Fake IDs

Pittsburgh Criminal Defense Attorney

Fake ID Charges

Under Pennsylvania law, you will be charged with a misdemeanor if you are a minor found using a fake ID. Minors under the age of 21 who are caught using fake identification to buy or attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages can be charged with a violation of laws regulating alcohol and identity fraud. Unfortunately, more and more individuals attempt to create fake IDs through the use of better technology. The tools to create these IDs have become available to many and are used by technologically proficient college students. Our firm has provided superior legal representation for people charged with using a fake ID in Pennsylvania and may be able to help you as well.

Charged With the Possession of a Fake ID?

False identification charges also include using or possessing someone else's ID as well as using or possessing an ID with a fake name, age, birth date, or photograph. If you are convicted of this offense a second or third time, then you will face increased penalties based on third-degree misdemeanor charges. The penalties may include up to $500 in fines, up to 90 days in jail, and the loss of your license for up to 1 year for a second offense and 2 years for third offense.
