Penalties For An Arrest of Minor in Possession of a Fake ID
For a violation of minor in possession of a fake ID (Business and Professions Code 25661), the minor faces community service of 24-32 hours or fines of $250 plus court costs and fees. In addition, the minor in possession of a fake ID faces losing their driver’s license for one year. If he or she does not yet have a license, the suspension will take place upon application for the license.
Even if the minor in possession of a fake ID charge is reduced to an infraction from a misdemeanor, there will still be a loss of license for one year.
An Arrest For Being a Minor in Possession of a Fake ID Can Harm Your Future If Not Handled Properly
In addition to the court and DMV penalties, a conviction of a misdemeanor has the very real possibility of affecting your future. All criminal convictions show up on background checks, meaning you will always be haunted by a youthful indiscretion. Colleges and employers will always see the criminal conviction on your record.
