Tuscaloosa Fake ID Defense Lawyers

Has Your Son or Daughter Been Charged?

As a trusted legal team serving University of Alabama students and their parents as well as others throughout Jefferson, Blount, Bibb, Pickens & Tuscaloosa Counties, we understand your concerns when your son or daughter has been arrested. Using a fake ID to purchase alcohol and underage drinking are common offenses for young people under the age of 21. Reaching the legal drinking age often does not occur for college students until late in their education. This leads to the large use of fake IDs on college campuses.

If your son or daughter has been arrested for attempting to or purchasing alcohol using false identification, we urge you to turn to The Glasscox Law Firm LLC. Our legal team has 50 years of combined experience involving the defense of all major and minor crimes in our area. We have a full understanding of the law and deep familiarity with the local courts. We will work diligently to help your son or daughter avoid a conviction and the penalties that can result.

Consult with a Tuscaloosa fake ID defense attorney about your case at (205) 509-5547 or contact us online as soon as possible.

Charges Related to Manufacturing or Possessing a Fake ID

If an individual under 21 years of age uses a fake ID to purchase alcohol (or attempts to), it is charged as a Class A misdemeanor. Potential conviction penalties include up to 6 months in a jail along with fines. They do not include whatever punishments may apply for the offense of underage drinking if that has also been part of the arrest.

Manufacturing a fake ID is a different and more serious offense as it is considered forgery. Creating a forged ID can be charged as a felony. This offense involves the intent to defraud. Sentences for a conviction will vary according to circumstances but can include up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. It will also result in a permanent criminal record, which can be detrimental to future employment and professional licenses, as well as being problematic for renting an apartment or obtaining educational financial aid.

As an alternative to criminal consequences, your child may qualify for youthful offender status which leads to special adjudication. This adjudication avoids a criminal conviction and also seals the youth’s record from the public, preventing future education, employment, and other opportunities from being jeopardized. Our attorneys can analyze your son’s or daughter’s case to determine if this status is the best option and take the necessary legal steps.

Protect Your Child’s Future with Our Help

A criminal conviction that can be a detriment to your son or daughter’s future needs a serious response from a trusted legal team. The Glasscox Law Firm LLC will treat you and your child with the respect, care, and dedication needed at this critical juncture and do everything possible to work toward a favorable outcome.
