Fake ID

Charged with Using a Fake ID in the Coastal North Carolina Area?

It happens all the time – a high school or a college student gets their hands on a fake ID and attempts to use it to buy some alcohol or get into a local nightclub. This, while it may seem innocent, is actually a criminal offense and is treated harshly by North Carolina law. According to §18B-302(e), it is considered a criminal offense for an underaged person to knowingly enter a place where alcoholic beverages are sold and attempt to obtain the alcohol through the use of the following:

  • Fraudulent/altered driver’s license or identification document
  • Another person’s driver’s license or identification document
  • Any means that attempts to indicate the defendant is of legal drinking age

If discovered, a conviction report will have to be filed with the local Division of Motor Vehicles and the defendant in question will be forced to deal with a revoked driver’s license for up to a year. There will be no option of receiving a limited driving privilege following a conviction of this nature, not without the help of a criminal defense lawyer.
