Most people think that using a fake ID to get alcohol is not a big deal and a lot of college aged students have at least thought about using one at some point in their life.
Unfortunately, some find out the hard way that Florida has one of the most punitive laws against minors using fake IDs after they’ve been arrested in Fort Walton Beach or Destin.
Originally targeted at those actually making these false identification cards and driver’s licenses, the statute is so broad that it has become a “catch-all” for everyone connected to the fake ID.
And since it is categorized as a third degree felony, it means that you may be facing up to 5 years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine.
In Fort Walton Beach, Destin and elsewhere in Okaloosa County and Walton County, Criminal Defense Attorney Shawn Lupella has helped thousands fight their felony arrest and he can help you too. Call him today for a free consultation at (850) 362-6655.
