Charged With False Identification or Fake Identification in Lake Como NJ?

Of all the bars in Lake Como, the one that leads to the greatest number of arrests for false ID or fake ID is Bar A, aka Bar Anticipation. As soon as the weather gets nice or the St. Patrick’s Day Parade comes to town, thousands of teenagers and “twenty some things” descend upon Lake Como to drink alcohol, meet other guys and young ladies and enjoy the beach town lifestyle. However, every season there are underage drinkers who, understandably, want to be a part of the “Bar A” or Paul’s Tavern lure and unfortunately they find themselves on the wrong side of the law, arrested and facing serious criminal charges for using a fake ID and/or false identification.

In all my years of representing young adults who were arrested for underage drinking or fake ID’s, invariably the client’s were all college students seeking occupations in the legal field, teaching field, nursing field, financial field, law enforcement field or other professional field. Unfortunately, if you are arrested and convicted, a conviction or convictions for false ID will be on your criminal record and more than likely show up on an employer’s, background check. In addition you can face a six month loss of your driver’s license, fines, probation and up to six months jail. I have successfully resolved false ID and/or fake identification charges for years. Call us today at 732-431-2224 for a free consultation to discuss your charge and to prepare your defense.

Another offense that young adults and/or teenagers are charged with in Lake Como is misrepresenting one’s age to induce sale or delivery to of alcohol to a minor; which is a disorderly person’s offense. By law, an individual commits an underage alcohol violation if he has committed the following as stated in N.J.S.A. 33:1-81.

(a) A person under the legal age for purchasing alcoholic beverages to enter any premises licensed for the retail sale of alcoholic beverages for the purpose of purchasing, or having served or delivered to him or her, any alcoholic beverage; or

(b) A person under the legal age for purchasing alcoholic beverages to consume any alcoholic beverage on premises licensed for the retail sale of alcoholic beverages, or to purchase, attempt to purchase or have another purchase for him any alcoholic beverage; or

(c) 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; or

(d) Any person to enter any premises licensed for the retail sale of alcoholic beverages for the purpose of purchasing, or to purchase alcoholic beverages, for another person who does not because of his age have the right to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages.

Any person who violates any of the provisions of this section shall be deemed and adjudged to be a disorderly person, and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not less than $500.00. In addition, the court shall suspend or postpone the person’s license to operate a motor vehicle for six months.

Fraudulent Document or ID Charges in the Lake Como Municipal Court

It is a fourth degree crime under N.J.S.A. 2C:21-2.1, to knowingly possess or exhibit false identification or age verification documents. The penal consequences of this indictable offense can be up to 18 months in prison, a $10,000.00 fine, and a potential loss of your driving privileges. In addition you can also be charged with “Tampering with Public Records or Information” in Lake Como for the use of a fraudulent ID or fake ID under N.J.S.A. 2C:28-7. A charge under N.J.S.A. 2C:28-7 is a disorderly person offense. The consequences for a conviction of a disorderly person’s offense are a $1,000 fine, up to six months in jail and a suspension of your driving privileges. If you are convicted of a disorderly person’s offense, you are not eligible to clear and/or expunge your record for a minimum of five years. If you are convicted of the indictable offense, you cannot expunge your record for a minimum of five years for good cause or ten years without good cause.

Fortunately, I have been extremely successful in resolving these cases to an ordinance violation which is non criminal in nature and expugnable in two years. As a result, you would avoid a criminal record, potential jail and a license suspension when you hire me for your Lake Como Fake ID case.
