Fake ID Charges Can Have Serious and Lasting Consequences

The crime of using a fake ID or a fake driver's license can result in possible felony charges. Even if you are arrested for an unrelated crime, such as underage drinking, the mere possession of false driver's license or fake identification can lead to more serious charges. If you are arrested on or near campus for using a fake ID, you may face a college disciplinary hearing that may affect your status in school and have a permanent effect on your college record. In addition, there is no procedure for removing fake ID convictions from a criminal record in New York.
