Possession of a fake identification is in a similar vein to Texas’ statute on possession of a fictitious license. Both offenses involve an illegal misrepresentation of one’s identity; however, unlike a fictitious license offense, possession of fake identification does not an individual to be under the age of twenty-one (21).

In many circumstances, underage college students gain access to fake I.D.’s to gain access to certain clubs or bars, or to buy alcohol from distributors. Merely displaying a false form of identification is enough to be charged with a criminal offense under Texas law.

If you or someone you know was charged with displaying a fake identification, it would benefit you to discuss your charges with a skilled criminal defense attorney who can work with you to limit any penalties associated with your charges.

    Kevin was a blessing to my family and saved my son's future after he was charged with a felony drug possession case. Kevin worked around the clock for us. I know because he would send us emails at all hours of the day and night with updates on the case and suggestions on what we could do to put on the best defense. Kevin always called us back, even in the evenings and on the weekends. If you want an attorney that cares about you as a person, Kevin is who you want.

    I spoke with several different lawyers and ended up hiring Kevin because he seemed the most interested in my case and not my money. He handled my felony possession case like it was his own. He did everything that he said he would do and he even got my case expunged within about a month after it was dismissed. I know have a clean record and I absolutely believe it was because I hired the right lawyer. I was hire Kevin with no questions if the need ever arises.
