Is Having a Fake ID a Crime?

Possession of a fake identification such as a driver’s license or using a fake driver’s license to gain entry into a bar or night club is, believe it or not, a criminal offense. If you are 18, 19 or even 20 years old, you may think nothing of using a fake ID or fake driver’s license to get into clubs on the Jersey Shore such as in Manasquan, New Jersey  or Seaside Heights, NJ.

The problem is that the bouncers in these clubs are trained to spot a fake ID and do not hesitate to call the local police in Manasquan or Seaside Heights when they suspect your ID or driver’s license is fake. The police simply do not care that you are a college student with no prior record or that your parents are going to be extremely disappointed if you are charged with a criminal offense.

New Jersey Possession of a Fake ID – You May be Able to Avoid a Criminal Conviction

Possession of a Fake ID in New Jersey is a disorderly persons offense. A disorderly persons offense is a criminal offense that can carry a sentence of up to 6 months in the County jail, a fine and a permanent criminal record. Our attorneys, however, have  been repeatedly successful in having the charge amended to a non-criminal town code or borough ordinance violation with a fine as the only consequence.

Can I Have Possession of a Fake ID Removed from My Permanent Record?

If you have been convicted for Possession of a fake ID in NJ  pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C: 28-7 or were convicted to the amended town or borough ordinance violation, you will eventually be eligible for removal of the arrest and conviction from your record. Removal of an arrest or conviction from your New Jersey record is called an expungement.

In addition to handling your criminal case for possession of a fake ID, our attorneys can also guide you in ultimately having your record expunged. Call for a free consultation today at 732-303-7857.
