Illinois Fake ID Arrest
Get Experienced Legal Help from Our Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney
Due to the recent advancements in technology, it is easier than ever for
a teenager to obtain or make a fake identification card. All it takes

to get their hands on one. However, few teens do not comprehend the serious
magnitude of the crime.
If your teenage child has been arrested for using a fraudulent ID card
in Illinois, the
Law Office of Steven Fine is ready to protect his or her rights and future. Our Chicago criminal
defense lawyer will stand by your child’s side during the entire
legal process and do his best to either get the charges reduced or the
case dismissed entirely.
Penalties for Possessing and Manufacturing a Fake ID Card
Possessing a fake identification card is considered a felony offense in
Illinois. Depending on how close your child is close to being 18 years
old, he or she could potentially serve time in prison. The courts could
also make your child pay an expensive fine, serve community service, and
have his or her driver’s license suspended.
Manufacturing a fake ID is also a felony. If your child advertises services
for making fake ID cards, it is a Class A misdemeanor that is punishable
by both jail time and fines.
Keep in mind, being found guilty of either one of these crimes could be
reflected on the teen’s record permanently. This could mean that
your child will have a hard time finding a job or getting accepted into college.
