False ID Charges

Fishers False ID Attorneys at Your Side

Even though movies and television shows seem to make it a joke to procure a fake identification card to try to purchase alcohol as a minor under the age of 21, Indiana law sees it differently. If you have been charged with using a fake ID to get or consume alcohol, then you could be facing a serious misdemeanor offense – at least.

Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP is here to help you defend your rights, reputation, and finances after being accused of falsifying an ID to buy alcohol. This particular alcohol-related offense will likely be charged as a Class C misdemeanor in Indiana, which can bring heavy criminal penalties.

People convicted of a false ID charge can be penalized with:

  • One-year driver’s license suspension
  • 60 days of jailtime
  • $500 fine
  • Marks on your driver’s record

In other words, the offense can reach far into multiple corners of your life. Not having a driver’s license for a year can be devastating if you rely on your own vehicle for day-to-day transportation, as most people do. The mark on your criminal history may also follow you for years as you look for new jobs, residences, loans, and so forth. This is not a charge you should take lightly.

False ID Charges without Any ID

Did you know that you do not need to actually present a fabricated identification card to a shopkeeper, bouncer, cashier, or anyone else selling or distributing alcohol to be accused of a false ID charge? All it takes is for you to misrepresent your age to dishonestly appear older than 21. You could simply tell someone you are of drinking age when you are not to be hit with a false ID charge in Indiana.

However, if your charges do stem only from a claim of being older and no actual false ID, then the prosecution will have difficulty proving its case. Let our Fishers fake ID attorneys gain the advantage and utilize it as much as possible on your behalf. Contact our criminal defense law firm today to arrange a FREE consultation.
