Depending on what sort of fake ID you have and how you use it, you can be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony. Misdemeanor false i.d. charges carry a penalty of up to 12 months in jail and felony charges carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in state prison.
Providing criminal defense is something I take very seriously. I know I am holding a person’s future in my hands.
Fraud Criminal Defense
Using a fake ID may seem like a rite of passage for many, and the crime’s abundance may make it seem victim-less. But for the people actually caught using one, (or indeed even the stores caught selling to someone using them), the punishments can be severe and costly.
In Georgia possession of a fake id is a misdemeanor the first time your caught.
If you get caught a second time it’ll be a felony.
That is why you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can tell you how to minimize your sentence, explain your rights, and possibly get the conviction expunged from your record.
