Fake ID Offense in Asbury Park New Jersey
There are a host of New Jersey laws that potentially apply whenever someone is arrested for possession of fake ID. The offense can be filed under N.J.S.A. 2C: 21-2.1, commonly referred to possession of a forged, altered or counterfeit driver’s license, N.J.S.A. 2C:28-7, tampering with public records or N.J.S.A. 2C:21-2.1, misrepresentation of age to obtain alcoholic beverages. A conviction on any of these charges results in a criminal record and fines, as well as potential jail and a driver’s license suspension. These consequences are avoided by the lawyers at our firm in an extremely high percentage of ID cases we handle in Asbury Park and elsewhere in Monmouth County. The typical outcome is a downgrade to Asbury Park Municipal Ordinance 6-8.3 which makes it “unlawful for any person to misrepresent or misstate his age, or the age of any other person for the purpose of inducing any licensee or any employee of any licensee, to sell, serve or deliver any alcoholic beverage to a person under the legal age for purchasing alcoholic beverages.” When a fake ID charge is downgraded to 6-8.3, the accused escapes a criminal record and penalties are usually limited to a fine.
