Fake Ids - Part II

When I recently wrote a post about the circumstances surrounding and consequences of possessing a fake ID as a minor, it got me thinking about the other side of the fake ID process, the provider. Under Pennsylvania law, making, altering, selling or attempting to sell identification that represents the identity, birth date or age of someone else is a second degree misdemeanor. This puts it on par with certain theft and drug crimes.

Fake IDs

When a client comes to me with a child that was caught and cited with underage drinking, that child often possessed a fake ID when he or she was arrested or cited. Regardless of whether or not the minor used the ID to purchase alcohol, it is illegal in the Commonwealth to possess an identification card that falsely identifies that person by name, age, date of birth, or photograph as being 21 years of age or older. Therefore, even if a minor simply has the fake ID and hasn't used it, he or she cnuld be found guilty of a crime.
